Course Description

This course provides an introduction to computational economics for undergraduates. It will cover the application of computational methods to economic models in fields such as sectoral economics, environmental economics, macroeconomics, growth theory and others. The computational methods will include both simulation and optimization approaches as well as databases. A variety of computer languages will be used including GAUSS, GAMS, and Mathematica. Previous knowledge in economics, mathematics, and compuational methods is useful though strength in one or two of these areas can more than accomodate for little or no background in one or two of the others. There are weekly computer exercises as well as a mid-term and a term paper.
