About the Authors
  • Without expecting any particular background of the reader, this book covers graphs and relations, sequences and limits, partial derivatives, optimization, vectors, and matrix algebra. Throughout, the stress is firmly on how the mathematics relates to economics, and this is illustrated with copious examples and exercises that will foster depth of understanding.

    • Authors have been teaching this at LSE for several years
    • Very broad coverage of topics
    • No mathematical fudging yet clear presentation
    • Suitable for both maths and economics backgrounds
