ECON-425 Mathematics for Economics
Fall for 2017-2018
This course will introduce you to the mathematical tools employed in economics. After a brief review of basic concepts, we turn to optimization problems subject to equality and inequality constraints. The method of Lagrange (and generalizations by Kuhn and Tucker) will be introduced and employed to solve static problems. Optimal control and dynamic programming will be used for dynamic problems. Advanced mathematical methods including multivariate calculus and linear algebra may be used and taught in the course.
Prerequisites: (ECON-101 or ECON-103) and MATH 137 or permission of instructor
