At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :
|1||This mathematics course is given over to algebra and matrix calculus and Part three to optimisation and differential equations. The course has thee main components and aims to teach students: " the apparatus of Mathematics (an aim which involves acquiring a whole body of knowledge). Students should be able to acquire a reasonable capacity to handle the concepts studied in the course, which are the concepts underlying the quantitative models and methods in Economic and Management Science. " How to reason in a formalised and rigorous way (a more difficult skill to acquire and one which requires practical mathematical modelling skills) " To become independent in their work and study. This course deals with mathematical formalisation in Economic, Political and Social Science in general, with particular focus on management applications. It aims to prepare students for studying specific or "state of the art", quantitative analytical and decision-making models in various fields of management.|
The contribution of this Teaching Unit to the development and command of the skills and learning outcomes of the programme(s) can be accessed at the end of this sheet, in the section entitled “Programmes/courses offering this Teaching Unit”.
- matrix calculus: vectors, matrices, determinant, linear algebra, orthogonality, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, quadratic forms,
- calculus of functions of several variables: geometric description, limits, continuity, differentiability, optimisation.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The course consists of:
- lectures: the teacher defines concepts, demonstrates results, and illustrates them with an example or an application,
- exercice sessions: the teacher submits problems to the students and suggests solving methods, the students participate actively to the solution of the problems.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The evaluation will be based on a test organized during the year and the final exam which will consist of a theoretic part and a part with exercices. The exam will test the students' knowledge and understanding of the material, as well as their capability to construct solving methods. There will be open questions and multiple choice questions.
