ECON 280A
Mathematical Modeling in Economics
Fall

Mathematical modeling has become an indispensable tool in economics, finance, business, and public policy. In this course, we use the language of mathematics to describe and understand economic relationships such as those between employers and employees, lenders and borrowers, insurers and insured, etc. Topics to be covered in the course include multivariate constrained optimization and equilibrium conditions with applications to models of dynamic growth, principal-agent relationships, insurance, bargaining, and contracting.
