I will assume some basic economics and calculus. Some statistics experience would also be helpful. We will be using the computer program/language Mathematica to document the models, program the experiments, and evaluate the results. No background in Mathematica is assumed, but an interest in programming is valuable. Initially, we will be spending a good deal of time working through the basics of Mathematica , considering simple economic problems and
