Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Knowledge, comprehension The student will be able... - to solve the systems of linear equations, to control basic terminology and related applications - to explain the concept of the primitive function and indefinite integral, to control the basic rules, formulas and techniques of integration - to define the definite integral (Darboux construction), to compute the definite integral with the help of Newton-Leibniz formula, to control the related basic geometric and economic applications - to define real functions of two real variables, to find the domain of functions of two variables and its visualization, to give the overview of basic functions of two variables used in economics, to explain the concept of homogenous functions of order 's' and to give the connections to economics - to define and to compute the partial derivatives with the help of their definitions and with the help of rules and formulas, to apply the partial derivatives for determining of local extremes (Hessian matrix), to define and interpret local extrema in a correct way, to discuss local extrema by means of their definition (inequality-type conditions, i.e., without the Hessian matrix), to find constrained extremes (Lagrange's multiplier) - to distinguish and to solve the basic types of differential and difference equations of 1st and 2nd order, to state the basic application possibilities in economics - to control the principles of difference calculus in connection with the monotonicity and dynamics of real sequences, to explain the connection between summation and difference

Summary

The aim of the subject is to get acquainted with the basic knowledge of advanced mathematics, which is necessary for further studies of quantitative methods in economics. The subject’s structure and nature themselves have their importance as they help to develop logical thinking as well as the ability to enunciate thoughts accurately and to give clear argumentation when solving the practical problems. Formal prerequisites: Mathematics A

Subject syllabus:

The aim of the subject is to get acquainted with the basic knowledge of advanced mathematics, which is necessary for further studies of quantitative methods in economics. The subject’s structure and nature themselves have their importance as they help to develop logical thinking as well as the ability to enunciate thoughts accurately and to give clear argumentation when solving the practical problems. After successful and active graduation of subject • will know: count integral indeterminate, definite and improper, find extrems of function of two variables and solve differential equations of first order, • profit: basic knowledge from integral calculus, about function of two variables and about differential equations, • will be able: use mathematics as instrument for better comprehension of economy.
