Dynamical models of decision-making in complex social and economic systems (online course)

Credits: 6

Semester: 3

Course: Core

Language of the course: English


Students will study theoretical basics of economic and mathematical analysis of dynamics of socio-economic systems: classification of complex social and economic systems, types of recording the dependence of economic indicators on time, methods for solving differential equations, elements of qualitative theory of differential equations, basic tools of integration solutions, basic concepts and behavioral tools economic theory of small social groups, basic decision-making models.
Students will learn to build and analyze models of economic dynamics based on ordinary differential equations (systems of different levels and types of activity, dynamic processes in the economy, taking into account crisis, transitional and cyclical processes), developing and implementing integration solutions, solving social and economic problems of a collective; independent work in the MATLAB environment, as well as the most common application programs of modern operating systems, decision-making in difficult socio-economic situations.
Students will acquire skills in calculating and analyzing the main economic indicators of the dynamics of economic activity of subjects; assessing the quality of integration decisions, optimizing the work of information systems, making decisions in complex socio-economic situations, developing quantum models of decision making of the work of information systems.
