AGST Module 5 (Developing & Transition Economies Studies) will hold an intensive lecture course titled “Mathematical Economics for Agricultural Economists (Special Lecture on Natural Resource Economics IIIB)” from 25 to 30 January, 2017. Some basic math techniques are crucial for a proper understanding of modern literature of agricultural economics, resource and environmental economics, as more and more mathematics is introduced into economic literature. The course will offer some basic techniques related to economic analysis and optimization (including static and dynamic optimization). This course is designed to help graduate-level students in agricultural economics at Kyoto University understand some basic math tools for the analysis in agricultural economics, development economics, farm management, and environmental and resource economics.[Instructor]
