The aim of the course is to provide the student with the knowledge of advanced mathematical methods to successfully deal with economic models from a quantitative viewpoint.
The course will integrate the basic math knowledge acquired in the bachelor program treating: advances topics of linear algebra; elements of calculus and static optimization in several variables; an introduction to the theory of dynamic models through difference and differential equations.
At the end of the course, the student will be able to deal, autonomously and properly, with the learned mathematical topics and apply them to economic problems with the needed methodological rigor.
Calculus and optimization in one variable and basic notions of linear algebra.
The course will be taught by frontal lectures. During the a.y. 2021/22 the lectures might be in blended mode.
