This text offers a comprehensive presentation of the mathematics required to tackle problems in economic analyses. 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. The only prerequisite is high school algebra, but the book goes on to cover all the mathematics needed for undergraduate economics. It is also a useful reference for graduate students. After a review of the fundamentals of sets, numbers and functions, the book covers liPHI - MITs and continuity, the calculus of functions of the 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. This streamlined third edition offers an array of new and updated examples. The book and the web material are cross-referenced in the text. A student solutions manual is available in ebook form and instructors are able to access online the instructor’s manual, which includes powerpoint slides.
