The uses of mathematical argument in extending the range, depth, and precision of economic analysis are explored. The central goal of the course is to promote sophistication in translating the logic of economic problems into tractable and fruitful mathematical models. Particular attention is paid to the analysis of optimization and strategic interaction. Interested students should have some familiarity with the tools of calculus and linear algebra.
Students gain experience working through mathematical models of economic decision-making and interaction.
