ECON5102 MATHEMATICS FOR ECONOMIC ANALYSIS
This course introduces the essential mathematical methods for economic analysis. To underscore the relevance of mathematics to economics, this course motivates the study of mathematical methods
with the analytical needs of economists, and illustrates the study with appropriate economic applications. The following topics will be covered: elementary real analysis, linear models and matrix
algebra for static or equilibrium analysis, differential calculus and comparative static analysis for general function models, optimizations with constraints, differential and difference equations and
dynamic optimization. Basic calculus and elementary linear algebra are prerequisites.
