9780273655435: Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis

The book is by far the best choice one can make for a course on mathematics for economists. It is exemplary in finding the right balance between mathematics and economic examples. Dr Roelof J Stroeker, Erasmus University, Rotterdam. The writing style is superb it manages to allow intuitive understanding whilst not sacrificing mathematical precision and rigour. Dr Steven Cook, University of Wales Swansea Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis provides an invaluable introduction to mathematical analysis and linear algebra for economists. Its main purpose is to help students acquire the mathematical skills they need in order to read the less technical literature associated with economic problems. The coverage is comprehensive, ranging from elementary algebra to more advanced material, whilst focusing on all the core topics usually taught in undergraduate courses on mathematics for economists.

Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis

Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysisprovides an invaluable introduction to mathematical analysis for economists and students from other social science backgrounds taking a general course in mathematics. The coverage is comprehensive, ranging from elementary algebra to more advanced material, whilst focusing on all the core topics usually taught in undergraduate courses on mathematics for economists. FEATURES
    • An intelligent approach to teaching mathematics, based on years of experience.
    • The book has mathematical rigour and a strong focus on mathematical reasoning.
    • Large selection of worked examples throughout the book. These are not just specific to economics, as most topics are first dealt with from a purely mathematical point of view before providing economic insight.
    • Large number of problems for students to solve. Answers to odd-numbered questions included in the back of the book.
    The book is primarily intended for undergraduate courses in Mathematics for Economists at first and second year level. Students are expected to have completed A-Level mathematics, or at least a preliminary course. However, there is considerable coverage of basic material in early revision or 'catch-up' chapters. The book is also appropriate for students of other social sciences who are taking a general mathematics course.  Knut Sydsæterhas been a Professor of Mathematics in the Economics Department at the University of Oslo since 1985, and has extensive experience in teaching mathematics for economists. In addition to his teaching at Oslo University (since 1965), he has given graduate courses in dynamic optimization at Yale, Berkeley, and Gothenborg. He has written and co-authored a number of books, of which several have been translated into many languages. Peter Hammondhas been a Professor of Economics at Stanford University since 1979, and earlier had the same position at the University of Essex. He completed a BA in Mathematics and a PhD in Economics at Cambridge University. He has been an editor of the Review of Economic Studies, and of the Econometric Society Monograph Series, and is currently on the editorial boards of Social Choice and Welfare and of the Journal of Public Economic Theory.
