Intensive Seminar
Math Refresher
instructed by Tilko Swalve

Description
This course is designed to provide mathematical tools useful for the rest of your Master program in Mannheim, especially for the upcoming, mandatory courses in statistics and game theory. The course reviews some mathematical concepts most of you will be familiar with from high school. We will cover fundamentals in set theory, uni- and (partially) multivariate calculus, linear algebra and probability theory. Each day consists of lectures and exercise sessions. The course's objective is to make students familiar and comfortable reading mathematical statements and applying various mathematical techniques. Students can schedule one-on-one meetings with the instructors to review parts of the material.
