Hi everyone!! I hope you are fine. I am in a master program of international relationseconomics and I am taking a bunch of Math classes to prepare for the PhD in Economics. I am pretty much done with the basic requirements, but I would like to take more useful Math classes. I would take introduction to analysis, but I need first to take Math Reasoning (a proof based class), I will be taking it on the Winter. So I have the chance to take more Math classes this upcoming Fall quarter. The Math department recommends these two classes for their Matheconomics majors: 170A. Introduction to Numerical Analysis: Linear Algebra (4) Analysis of numerical methods for linear algebraic systems and least squares problems. Orthogonalization methods. Ill conditioned problems. Eigenvalue and singular value computations. Three lectures, one recitation. Knowledge of programming recommended. Prerequisites: Math 20F. (F,S) 102. Applied Linear Algebra (4) Second course in linear algebra from a computational yet geometric point of view. Elementary Hermitian matrices, Schur’s theorem, normal matrices, and quadratic forms. MoorePenrose generalized inverse and least square problems. Vector and matrix norms. Characteristic and singular values. Canonical forms. Determinants and multilinear algebra. Prerequisites: Math 20F. or Math 31AH. (W) I like statistics, econometrics and everything related to it: least squares, regressions, bla bla. There is also a Mathematical Modeling class, but I might not be able to take it due to schedule conflicts. I would like to know, what is the difference between those two classes? Thank you!!
