Introduction to Quautitative Methods National Taiwan University
This is a mathematical analysis course for doctoral and master students in economics. The course aims to prepare you for advanced courses in economics and your future research. The material includes some basic concepts in set theory, real analysis, convexity and optimization. Given the time constraint, the focus of the course is not to have an extensive coverage of mathematical concept and theorem, but rather to give you a decent training in abstract reasoning and theorem proving.
