To complement and illustrate the pure theory, the course also covers a number of economic applications. Students will be asked to complete a number of assignments available via a dedicated web-site. These assignments are compulsory, but do not form part of the final grade. Instead the final grade will be based on a mid-term and a final exam. Fall.
