Summer Term 2023
Mathematik für Volkswirtschaftslehre II (Link STiNE)
In dieser Vorlesung erlernen Studierende der Volkswirtschaftslehre das mathematische Hintergrundwissen, welches zum Verständnis grundlegender ökonomischer Zusammenhänge für den weiteren Fortgang des Studiums benötigt wird. Die Bedeutung und Anwendbarkeit dieser Werkzeuge im weiteren Studienverlauf wird durch anwendungsbezogene Beispiele illustriert.
Further Mathematics for Economic Analysis (Link STiNE)
This course is intended for advanced undergraduate students of economics whose mathematical requirements and interest go beyond the material of the essential methods taught in their undergraduate studies. In particular, the students learn the basic mathematical concepts for dynamic economic analysis. Dynamic systems arise frequently in economics, most prominently in the theory of economic growth, resources economics, climate systems and business cycle theory. The course is designed to be accessible to anybody who has had a basic training in mathematical analysis and linear algebra at the level of Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis.
Financial Markets and the Real Economy (Link STiNE)
This course examines the intersection between macroeconomics and finance. The first part (about 8 weeks) takes a tour through a selection of articles that survey the various approaches - including the equity premium, consumption based models, general equilibrium models and labor income/idiosyncratic risk approaches. The second part consists of writing a project report within one of the suggested topics, which has to be
handed in and approved by the lecturer after a presentation in class. The course combines the participants’ prior knowledge of macroeconomics and finance and is therefore relevant for master students in economics with either focus in macro or finance.
Topics in Macro-Finance (Link Geventis)
In this Ph.D. seminar we will discuss original research in macro-finance, broadly defined to include the following topics, among others: financial frictions and monetary policy; financial accelerator; bank lending and financial intermediation; financial stability and risk-taking; consumption-based and production-based asset pricing; macroeconomic drivers of the term structure interest rates.
Research Seminar "Quantitative Economics " (Link)
The research seminar "Quantitative Wirtschaftsforschung" takes place every semester. During the lecture period from the second Tuesday onwards until the second to last Tuesday international scientists present current topics in quantitative economic research. As it is a research seminar and not a course it is not possible to earn any credit points. The language of the lecture is English.
Location/ Time: Von-Melle-Park 9, Room A215/ 12:15 p.m to 1:45 p.m.
