Students should know algebra and the Euclidean geometry.
The exam will consist in a written and oral test.
The objective of the course is to teach students the use of the essential mathematical tools for studying the quantitative and economic subjects of the graduate course. Moreover students should learn to develop abstract models to analyze real problems.
Revision of the basic concepts of algebra and Euclidean geometry. Trigonometry (basic concepts). Linear and nonlinear algebraic equations and inequalities. Equation systems. Exponential and logarithmic equations and inequalities. The concept of real function of one real variable. Limits and continuity. Derivatives of functions of one real variable; theorems of the derivable functions. Study of the function’s pattern. Concept of integral of a real function. Indefinite (antiderivative function) integral. Definite integral for area calculation. Elements of statistics.
