This course provides an introduction to demographic methods and terminology, with a focus on the mathematics needed to develop a deeper understanding of demography. Based primarily on the book by Preston, Heuveline and Guillot, this course will emphasize the beauty of formal relationships.
The course runs from 13 November 2012 to 29 January 2013 and will involve twelve 90-minute lectures.
Students are expected to understand elementary calculus.
There will be regular complementary exercises. An exam will be held towards the end of the course (in January).
