Calculus

An important topic in finance and economics is the study of the speed of change of different economic quantities over time, such as GDP, unemployment, investment, and so on. Further, risk management instruments rely heavily on the speed of change of the underlying assets’ values and prices. The mathematical concept that deals with these issues is the rate of change, otherwise known as the derivative.

This course introduces the concept of differentiation and its counterpart, integration. Simple economic applications of the two concepts are also described.

OBJECTIVES

On completion of this course, you will be able to:

• Determine the derivatives of various functions by applying different calculation rules

• Apply some basic rules to calculate the integral of a function and understand that integration is the reverse of differentiation
