DISCIPLINE SPECIFIC CORE COURSE -9 (DSC-9) : Advanced Mathematical Methods for Economics

Course Description

Learning Objectives

This is the last of a compulsory three-course sequence. The Learning Objectives of this course are as follows:

  • To transmit the body of basic mathematics that enables the study of economic theory at the
    undergraduate level, specifically the courses on microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory,
    statistics and econometrics set out in this syllabus.
  • In this course, particular economic models are not the ends, but the means for illustrating the method of applying mathematical techniques to economic theory in general.

Learning outcomes

The Learning outcomes of this course are as follows:

  • The course builds the skills for mathematical foundations necessary required further study of a variety of disciplines including postgraduate economics, statistics, computer science, finance and data analytics.
  • The analytical tools introduced in this course have applications wherever optimization techniques
    especially constrained optimization are used in business decision-making for managers and
    entrepreneurs alike.
  • These tools are necessary for anyone seeking employment as an analyst in the corporate world.


UNIT I: Multivariate Optimization with constraints (15 hours)
Constrained optimisation with equality and inequality constraints: geometric characterisation, Lagrange
characterisation using calculus and applications; properties ofvalue function: envelope theorem, applications.
UNIT II: Linear programming (15 hours)
Introduction, graphical solution, matrix formulation, duality, economic interpretation.
UNIT III: Integration, differential equations, and difference equations (15 hours)
Definite integrals, indefinite integrals and economic applications; first order and second order difference
