Synopsis

The unit will cover, in mathematical terms, many of the areas treated more intuitively in first-year microeconomics, eg: consumer demand, the theory of the firm, equilibrium and Pareto optimum. However, a significant portion of the lectures will deal with topics not covered earlier, such as non-linear programming, game theory, and dynamic optimisation.

Objectives

The learning goals associated with this unit are to:

  • analyse mathematically many of the basic economic problems introduced in earlier years
  • apply optimisation analysis to a range of other economic topics.
