Math 256 course info Steven Tschantz 1/13/11 Basic data This is course information for Math 256 - Spring 2011 Mathematical Models in Economics Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:35-3:50 SC2200 (computer lab) Prof. Steven Tschantz Office: SC1507 Office hours: TTh 1-2:30 and by appt. Office phone: (32)2-6664 Email: [email protected] Course homepage: http://www.math.vanderbilt.edu/~tschantz/m256/ Policies This course is about applying mathematics, defining and experimenting with mathematical models, with particular emphasis on applications in economics. 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 mathematical models
