This course is designed as a companion course to MATH 252, with an alternate set of topics that emphasize mathematical applications from the social sciences, especially economics. In this course, we analyze and simulate discrete, continuous, and stochastic models that relate to economics and finance. Basic fixed/equilibrium point analyses are covered for single equations and systems. An emphasis on numerical simulation is also covered using MATLAB. The figure to the left shows a bivariate histogram for two best fit parameters of a continuous Allee-Effect model.
