Mathematical Economics


The objective of this course is to develop the mathematical tools necessary for the study of intermediate micro- and macro-economic theory and the advanced electives in economics. The principal focus will be the calculus of multivariate functions (including total and partial differentiation), unconstrained and constrained optimization of multivariate functions, and implicit and inverse function rules. Time permitting, additional topics will be introduced. Economics majors and minors must take this course (or Math 233) prior to, or concurrently with, Econ 4011. Students who have taken, or are taking, Math 233 are encouraged to take this course as well. Prerequisites: Econ 1011 and Econ 1021, and Math 132.
