This book is a self-contained treatment of all the mathematics needed by undergraduate and beginning graduate students of economics. Building up gently from a very low level, the authors provide a clear, systematic coverage of calculus and matrix algebra and easily accessible introductions to optimization and dynamics. The emphasis throughout is on intuitive argument and problem-solving. All methods are illustrated by well-chosen examples and exercises selected from central areas of modern economic analysis. New features of the second edition include:
- a thorough exposition of dynamic optimization in discrete and continuous time
- an introduction to the rigorous mathematical analysis used in graduate-level economics.

"This is a great text to learn from -- the authors do an excellent job providing intuitive explanations, making connections between results and illustrating the use of mathematics in solving economics problems, and there is a host of solved exercises which perform two roles: providing essential practice material and introducing further applications in economics." --Andrew Chesher, University College London
