Mathematical Economics: Technique and Applications (ECON3127)

The foundations of economic theory are based on mathematical models. Thus, a clear understanding of the mathematical concepts that underpin the modelling is necessary for a thorough understanding of the economic content of such models. This course introduces students to a range of mathematical concepts and techniques that form the basis of advanced economic theory courses, such as the ones required of students enrolled in Honours, Masters and PhD programs. The concepts and techniques will be derived from basic principles and assumptions as thoroughly as possible, and will be illustrated using standard applications from economics.

Undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing an Honours or Post-graduate degree are advised to take this course as early as possible during their undergraduate studies.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity.
