9780262082945: Mathematics for Economics - 2nd Edition

This paperback edition is not available in the U.S. and Canada. 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'H˘pital's rule, Leibniz's rule, and a more intuitive development of the Hamiltonian. An instructor's manual is available.
