Public economics

Specific course requirements

Students should have successfully followed at least an introductory course in micro-economics.
A lot of the argumentation is based on formal mathematical notation and techniques.

Even though the mathematical notation is only an instrument to arrive at exact and precise statements and is never an aim in itself, students should feel comfortable with the use of basic mathematical notation (standard set theory) and methods (taking derivatives and simple algebraic manipulations).

The more difficult mathematical derivations can be found in appendices and are not part of the material for the exam.
