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.

'In spite of the wide scope of this textbook, its presentation is clear and crisp. The materials are very carefully organised. The transition from mathematical principles to economic propositions is remarkably lucid throughout the book. If a first-year undergraduate student in economics comes to ask me which one, among many books on mathematics for economists, to buy for years to come, then I would definitely tell them that this is the one.' --Chiaki Hara, Institute of Economic Research, Kyoto UniversityAbout the Author :
