|Objective||This course aims to lecture principal growth models, and is an introduction to the methods for studying simple deterministic dynamical systems.|
|Content||Introduction to keynesian and neoclassical growth theories.|
|Course Learning Outcomes||
1- To learn necessary tools to study simple dynamical systems.
2- To make an analytical study.
3- To study principal growth models in a critical way in theoretical level.
4- To check the practical validity of these models by testing them by the stylised facts of Kaldor.
