CS712 (erst CS698A): Selected Areas of Mechanism Design

This course deals with some selected advanced topics of mechanism design. This is a more research-oriented course and has both lecture and seminar sessions. A prerequisite for this course is CS711.

Guest lectures in ESC101: A short course on Python

This course introduces the basics of python programming and helps building blocks for scientific computing. The goal is to equip the students with a tool that can help check ideas computationally in a minimum amount of time and effort.

Comp271: Scientific Computing using Python

Algorithms and programming course for masters students in quantitative economics -- offered at ISI Delhi, Aug-Nov, 2014.

    Softwares and Scripts

    I have written a Python script that runs the Gale-Shapley deferred acceptance algorithm to match students to advisors. It can as well be used for matching students to schools / departments having a fixed capacity. A sample output is here. The whole project is on GitHub. The Facebook page for this app.
