Mathematical Methods for Economics and Finance
Please register for this lecture AND the tutorial (Übung) in
HISinOne!
Lecture
taught by Dr. Ernst August Frhr. v. Hammerstein
Content  This lecture is aimed at students of the MSc VWL and MSc Economics (all profiles) who are at the beginning of their studies. Mathematical tools going beyond the undergraduate level are provided. The lecture will cover a range of relevant mathematical tools and techniques that are typically required for further studies in economics. At the end of the course students should be able to understand and apply these tools. The methods discussed in class help students to read current economic research papers and work with economic models. Thus, they might be able to fully concentrate on the economics in their economic courses. During the semester the students practice the methods which are discussed in class with the help of problem sets.

Weekly Dates  Wednesdays 2:15pm3:45pm The lecture will be taught virtually via BigBlueButton (live). Video recordings will be uploaded to ILIAS. The link to the virtual BigBlueButtonroom, together with some hints and instructions for the BigBlueButton login, can be found on the ILIAS page for this course (see also below).
