Overview

The course offers a doctoral level mathematical treatment of microeconomics of decision making and
choice.

Learning outcomes

After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • write down logical and mathematical proofs of relationships between theoretical variables and constructs in decision theory and consumer theory
  • distinguish between the various purposes of theoretical modeling
  • apply modelling tools in the context relevant for your own research
  • assess the limitations of the theory
  • critically evaluate the modelling assumptions made and understand the various criteria for choosing modelling assumptions
  • relate the theoretical analysis to empirical research in the field
