### About the Book

"The ability to conceptualize an economic problem verbally, to formulate it as a mathematical model, and then to represent the mathematics in software so that the model can be solved on a computer is a crucial skill for economists. Computational Economics contains well-known models - and some brand-new ones - designed to help students move from verbal to mathematical to computational representations in economic modeling. The authors' focus, however, is not just on solving the models but also on developing the ability to modify them to reflect one's interest and point of view. The result is a book that enables students to be creative in developing models that are relevant to the economic problems of their times." "A fresh approach to the field, Computational Economics is a must-read for graduate students, professional economists, and even, as a first exposure to computational economics, for advanced undergraduates."--BOOK JACKET
