MATHEMATICAL ANALYSIS FOR ECONOMISTS by R. G. D. ALLEN. Originally published in 1937. FOREWORD; THIS book, which is based on a series of lectures given at the London School of Economics annually since 1931, aims at providing a course of pure mathematics developed in the directions most useful to students of economics. At each stage the mathematical methods described are used in the elucidation of problems of economic theory. Illustrative examples are added to all chapters and it is hoped that the reader, in solving them, will become familiar with the mathematical tools and with their applications to concrete economic problems. The method of treatment rules out any attempt at a systematic development of mathematical economic theory but the essentials of such a theory are to be found either in the text or in the examples. I hope that the book will be useful to readers of different types. The earlier chapters are intended primarily for the student with no mathematical equipment other than that obtained, possibly many years ago, from a matriculation course. Such a student may need to accustom himself to the application of the elementary methods before proceeding to the more powerful processes described in the later chapters. The more advanced reader may use the early sections for purposes of revision and pass on quickly to the later work. The experienced mathematical economist may find the book as a whole of service for reference and discover new points in some of the chapters. I have received helpful advice and criticism from many mathe maticians and economists. I am particularly indebted to Professor A. L. Bowley and to Dr. J. Marschak and the book includes numerous modifications made as a result of their suggestions on reading the original manuscript. I am also indebted to Mr. G. J. Nash who has read the proofs and has detected a number of slips in my construction of the examples. R. G. D. ALLEN THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS October, 1937.
