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 as well as 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.
The third edition of Mathematics for Economists features new sections on double integration and discrete-time dynamic programming, as well as an online solutions manual and answers to exercises. The book's careful arrangement into short chapters enables it to be used in a variety of course formats for students with and without prior knowledge of calculus, as well as for reference and self-study.

Malcolm Pemberton is a senior lecturer in the Department of Economics at University College London.Review:
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.
