## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

The module aims to introduce advanced topics in mathematical economics, applied game theory and general equilibrium theory. The treatment builds on the foundation established in EC220 and EC221.

###### Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module students will have an appreciation of the use and limitations of formal mathematical approaches to economic theory and applications and be familiar with the main results and open questions in the chosen areas. The seminar portion will strengthen skills in team working, the absorption and analysis of peer-reviewed literature, conveying and interpreting this material to a critical audience and leading discussions around a technical topic.

###### Timetabled teaching activities

"20 hours lectures over the Autumn Term. 6 hours of seminars over one Term."
