Hi guys!

I am looking for an interesting topic for my Math exploration. I would like it to be a quite decent topic as I really want to have a good grade and it would be awesome for me to write about something connected with economics. I think that calculus or modelling of fuction might be suitable topics for me, but I can't really find anything good. Can someone help me or send some inspirations?

Thanks

I studied both higher lever maths and economics and did my maths IA on economics. I used partial differentials and the Lagrangian multiplier to find different ways to algebraically model a utility function, an idea I derived from Consumer demand theory an economic concept.

Doing your maths exploration on economics is difficult. There are topics you can do, but won't be challenging enough e.g. Gini coefficients, or too hard e.g. in my case. All the maths and economics used were not taught in school - I learnt all of it by myself, and it was not easy.

I wouldn't do the exploration on economics unless I were insistent. In which case, some ideas:

- modelling theory of production, including finding an optimum combination of labour capital and land in production

- oligopolic market structures; research Cournot and his research on duopolies.

- econmetrics and statistical models. There are plenty of statistical methods that are advanced.

All the best

I know this is from a while ago but I was wondering if I could maybe see your IA. It sounds really interesting
