Abstract
Computational economics - the use of computers to solve complex mathematical problems numerically - is an increasingly important tool in economic analysis. I will present a range of economic problems for which computation is useful, discuss the basic computation techniques used to solve them, and give examples of the use of computation in economics classrooms at Union and in research done by students and faculty.
Lunch will be provided at noon.
