The course teaches the mathematical foundations of models in economics, business and finance and its applications. Mathematical topics covered include set theory, functions, series, limits, univariate and multivariate calculus, unconstrained and constrained optimisation, matrix algebra. Applications include effective interest rates, present value, annuities, production functions, average and marginal cost functions, profit maximisation.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate an understanding of mathematical techniques discussed;
- be able to formulate economic problems in mathematical terms and apply the tools provided to analyse them correctly and precisely;
- demonstrate an understanding of the common functional forms and rules used in derivatives and integrals of functions that frequently appear in economic models;
- apply the basic principles of maximisation and minimisation to optimisation problems in economics and find the correct solutions to these problems;
- apply matrix algebra to simple economic problems and linear models, demonstrating the ability to solve linear systems of equations in matrix form;
- make use of basic principles of financial arithmetic in economic and financial problems to compute solutions.
- Assessment may consist of a Final Exam, mid-semester exam(s), quizzes, assignments or some combination thereof. See the Class Summary for details. (100) [LO 1,2,3,4,5,6]
