Microeconomic Theory

The course gives a sound understanding of the formal core theories of microeconomics. It goes deeper than previous courses into topics such as consumer demand, producer supply and general equilibrium analysis. The course emphasizes mathematical analysis in developing the theory, but also explores its relationship with graphical analysis and formal economic reasoning. Although the course focuses on the theoretical framework of microeconomic analysis, there will also be some applications presented to illustrate the use of these analytical tools.

Welcome to the course Microeconomic Theory, 7.5 hp!

This course is a collaboration with Uppsala University where all teaching and examination will be held.

Upon completion of the course, the student is expected to have a sound understanding of the formal core theories of microeconomics.

Content

This course provides deeper insights into the core elements of microeconomic theory such as consumer demand, producer supply and general equilibrium analysis. It emphasizes mathematical analysis in developing the theory, but also explores its relationship with graphical analysis and formal economic reasoning. The course begins with the mathematics of optimization, the models of consumer and firm behavior, and moves on to market coordination of individual decisions. The model is closed with the theory of general competitive equilibrium. While the course focuses on the theoretical framework of microeconomic analysis, there will also be some applications presented to illustrate the use of these analytical tools.
