Content:

In the first part of the course we study the basics of general equilibrium theory (GET): modelling, the existence of equilibrium, welfare theorems. The relationship between the equilibrium and the core is highlighted via the core convergence theorem. Finally, we study how GET can handle uncertainty.

In the second part of the course we study non-strategic and non-market ways of allocating resources. These include Gale-Shapley algorithm, assignment models and frictional markets of directed search.
