Learning objectives:
  The aim of the course is to deal in more detail with the causal substance of economic relations, and to develop abilities and skills necessary to express economic relations by exact means and consequently carry out their analyses.
  The aim of the subject is the modelling of economic processes (micro and macro) by means of exact means of current engineering mathematics to set up conditions for subsequent computerizing. It essentially contributes to the development of student´s ability to comprehend causal essence of economic interrelations and to perform economic analyses. The contents includes : demand and supply analysis; consumption and saving with the basic models of national economy; revenue, cost and profit analysis; production; elasticity of demand and supply; utility.
Knowledge and skills required for the course:
  Basic course on mathematics completed within university study, basic course on microeconomics and macroeconomics.
Learning outcomes and competences:
  Acquired knowledge and practical skills will be applied to modelling dependencies of factors relating to economic phenomena, explaining their relations and solving problems of microeconomic and macroeconomic environment by with simple mathematical methods.
