This course introduce the basic principles of Microeconomic Theory to graduate level students. The lectures will cover four topics, namely Consumer Theory, Choice under Uncertainty, Firm Theory, and General Equilibrium (possibly under uncertainty as well if time allows).
The objective is to provide the students with thorough knowledge of the non-strategic model of decision making, both under certainty and uncertainty, and some of its applications to the competitive market model.
Students are expected to be comfortable with multivariable calculus, and should read the provided lecture notes BEFORE the lectures.
Office hours can be scheduled by email.
