Abstract

Economic analysis often leads to multidimensional numerical problems. The {\em Curse of Dimensionality\/} often leads researchers to adopt methods designed for very high-dimension problems, but inefficient for problems of intermediate dimension. However, a little mathematics can greatly help dealing with the {\em Curse\/}. We will survey methods from approximation theory, numerical quadrature, and symbolic computation that have helped economists tackle high-dimensional problems, and current work that will further reduce the computational cost of multidimensional problems.
