Microeconomis I with mathematics

Litteraturen är rekommenderade böcker. Böcker som täcker samma innehåll, grundläggande mikroekonomi och matematik med derivator, fungerar lika bra.

/Sarah

Varmt välkommen till Sveriges Lantbruksuniversitet och kursen Mikroekonomi I med matematik!

Här kommer allmän information om studentkonto, registrering på kurs samt annan praktisk information:

Studentkonto

Studentkonto behövs för att komma åt bl.a. Ladok, Canvas och mejl. För information om hur du skapar ett studentkonto, se här: https://student.slu.se/studieservice/it-stod1/support/ny-student-kom-igang/.

Registrering på kurs

Självregistrering på kurs görs i Ladok mellan 2021-10-18 och 2021-11-02. Kom ihåg att du måste vara antagen och registrerad för att gå kursen.

Har du antagits till kursen med villkor behöver du skicka din meritlista till kursledaren som avgör om du får registreras. Gör detta så snart som möjligt då granskning kan ta några dagar.

Särskilt studiestöd

Har du behov av särskilt stöd ska du informera kursledaren om det redan vid kursstart så att eventuella särskilda arrangemang kan ordnas. Vid examination följer du instruktionerna som du finner i tentamensanmälan. Mer information finner du här: https://student.slu.se/studieservice/studiestod/funka/

Avbrott på kurs

Om du avbryter kursen skall du meddela utbildningsadministrationen på econ-edu@slu.se som i sin tur meddelar kursledaren och lägger in ett avbrott i Ladok efter studentens godkännande. Du kan själv anmäla tidigt avbrott (inom 3 veckor efter kursstart) via Ladok Student på studentwebben.

Tentamina

Du blir automatiskt anmäld till första tentamen i kursen. Observera att detta endast gäller vid ordinarie tentamen och inte omtentamen. Detta gäller endast hos Institutionen för ekonomi. Du finner din anonymitetskod i Ladok Student.

Rättade tentor kan vanligtvis hämtas onsdagar kl. 12.30 – 14.30 på Institutionen för ekonomi i rum D416 och D417 i Ulls hus, vån 4. På grund av Covid är det bäst att mejla econ-edu@slu.se för att få hjälp med att hämta ut din tentamen.

Tveka inte att höra av dig till econ-edu@slu.se vid frågor.

Objectives

The course aims at introducing basic microeconomic theory, as well as provide the students with mathematical tools for economic analysis.

After successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

- Describe and apply the mathematical functions that are most common in the economics sciences.
- Calculate derivatives as well as use and understand derivative methods to solve problems in economics, such as optimization.
- Use basic multivariate analysis.
- Use elementary algebra.
- Describe the microeconomic basic and fundamental assumptions, questions, theories and models.
- Verbally and graphically explain how consumers and firms behave in different types of markets, as well as how welfare is shared between actors in different types of markets, starting with the competitive market.
- Describe the meaning of different market failures such as collective goods, external effects and asymmetric information and why these failures arise.
- Use microeconomic theory to solve basic economic problems.

Content

The course is conducted in the form of lectures and exercises, as well as a compulsory seminar.

The course consists of the following elements:

Mathematics;
- Elemantary algebra
- Linear and nonlinear function
- Derivatives, basic and partial derivatives with applications, including optimization.
- Basic logarithms and integrals

Microeconomics;
- Basic consumer and producer theory
- Review of different types of markets, such as perfect competition, monopoly, monopolistic competition
- Basic welfare analysis for different types of markets, as well as analysis of the distribution of welfare when policy influences the market
- Market failures – why do market failures arise and how can we deal with the resulting problems?
- Game theory
- Risk and individuals’ relationship to risk management
- General equilibrium analysis where several markets are in long run equilibrium
