# nLab mathematical economics

## Scope

Mathematical economics studies mathematical methods and models which are applicable or otherwise directly relevant in economics.

Applications of mathematics to economics are a wide field mainly out of scope of $n$Lab; the parts of mathematics applied typically involved are also those of minor presence in $n$Lab (numerical analysis and simulation, optimization, control theory, stochastic processes, regression analysis, time-series analysis, integral and differential equations, game theory, complex networks, fixed point theory, statistics) or moderate presence (variational calculus, dynamical systems) in $n$Lab.

We shall however include pointers in some cases which are relevant to the $n$Lab, for example (nontrivial) connections to category theory.
