Overview

This book offers a comprehensive presentation of the mathematics required to tackle problems in economic analysis. To give a better understanding of the mathematical concepts, the text follows the logic of the development of mathematics rather than that of an economics course. After a review of the fundamentals of sets, numbers, and functions, the book covers limits and continuity, the calculus of functions of one variable, linear algebra, multivariate calculus, and dynamics. To develop the student's problem-solving skills, the book works through a large number of examples and economic applications. The second edition includes simple game theory, l'Hôpital's rule, Leibniz's rule, and a more intuitive development of the Hamiltonian. An instructor's manual is available.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

"Mathematics is the language of economics, and this book is an excellent introduction to that language." George J. Mailath , Walter H. Annenberg Professor in the
Social Sciences and Professor of Economics, University of Pennsylvania

The MIT Press

"While there are many mathematics texts for economics available, this one is by far the best. It covers a comprehensive range of techniques with interesting applications, and the numerous worked examples and problems are a real bonus for the instructor. Teaching a course with this book is enjoyable and easy." Kevin Denny , University College
Dublin
