## Various material

Here there are the solutions of the examination of October 17. I have also somewhat written in good style the example of the last lecture. I personally think it's an interesting reading even though the course is over...
The topics are covered in these two files: first and second.
This is the paper by Baumol, that we will be discussed. Read the introduction and the section "A differential equation model", page 268.

Download a past final test (another one, with solutions).
