the article discusses the development algorithm of the undergraduate program in Applied Mathematics based on the determination of the demanded educationaloutcomes in accordance with the international standards.
The article describes the experience of designing project-based learning courses as part of the educational program "Applied Mathematics" in MIEM NRU HSE. The features of the organization of project-based learning for educational programs for mathematical sciences are considered. The results of the annual survey of employers, concluded that the need for various forms of project-based learning to achieve the learning outcomes claimed by employers. We suppose a sequence of the project-based workshops and seminars, as well as their approximate content. An important feature of the practice-oriented courses in the educational program "Applied Mathematics" is its interdisciplinary focus, including the projects carried out in a foreign language.
This book aims to present the newest research in the fields of mathematics and mechanics. Theories of mathematics and mechanics are the basis of modern technological improvements and, therefore, interest towards them are increasingly important.
We address the external effects on public sector efficiency measures acquired using Data Envelopment Analysis. We use the health care system in Russian regions in 2011 to evaluate modern approaches to accounting for external effects. We propose a promising method of correcting DEA efficiency measures. Despite the multiple advantages DEA offers, the usage of this approach carries with it a number of methodological difficulties. Accounting for multiple factors of efficiency calls for more complex methods, among which the most promising are DMU clustering and calculating local production possibility frontiers. Using regression models for estimate correction requires further study due to possible systematic errors during estimation. A mixture of data correction and DMU clustering together with multi-stage DEA seems most promising at the moment. Analyzing several stages of transforming society’s resources into social welfare will allow for picking out the weak points in a state agency’s work.
