# Preface

This is a work-in-progress course website for Mathematics for Economists. Course covers a limited subset of topics from Mathematics for Economists (Simon and Blume 1994), and uses various definitions from the book. Applications focus on two period borrowing and savings problems. Matlab’s symbolic toolbox is used throughout.

Materials are written in matlab (The MathWorks Inc 2019) livescript files and shown as HTML files. To obtain matlab codes, see here and here for github set up. For HTML files, click on the links below.
