Mathematics (Refresher)

Instructor: 
Description: 

This course on mathematics aims at refreshing basic mathematical knowledge essential for economic analysis. The course solely deals with deterministic mathematics. For some theorems formally rigorous proofs are presented in order to make participants more comfortable with - and ideally to provide some intuition for - constructing and understanding of mathematical proofs. Throughout the course proper use of notation will be stressed. It covers: sets, relations, preferences; vector spaces and linear algebra; topology and convex optimization; differential calculus.
