Synopsis:

The aim of this course is to provide students with a knowledge of the selected models for economics decision. The focus is put on linear models, scheduling projects and project management.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Economic models and their classification - introduction

2. Formulation of mathematical programming problems with a focus on linear models

3. Transport problem and its solution: MODI method, solution under various types of restrictions

4. Degeneration, multistage transport problem

5. Assignment problem and circular problem and its solution method: Hungarian method

6. Application of graph theory in economics: finding the minimum skeleton of the graph, maximum flow of networks, searching for minimum or maximum path length in the graph.

7. Project management: CPM method

8. Project management: time cost analysis of projects, resource analysis

9. Project management: PERT method

10. Deterministic models of inventory management: EOQ, POQ
