Morey notes: Mathematics is a language of symbols, grammar and logic. It greatly facilitates the process of deduction Necessary and Sufficient What is a theory (model) What is a function? 2. Equilibrium Analysis (Economic Models and Static Analysis). There is not a lot to read in S&H for this section, but review Chapter 2). 2.1 Equilibrium definition, partial and general equilibrium models. 2.2 Simple partial equilibrium models: a simple linear model of supply and demand; a simple nonlinear model of supply and demand. 2.3 Moving toward general equilibrium models (G.E.). Morey notes: Equilibrium notes 3. Economic Applications of Differential Calculus 3.1 The nature of comparative static analysis and the concept of a derivative: slopes, continuity, limits 3....
