I wrote this book as a self-teaching tool to assist every teacher, student, mathematician or non-mathematician for educating herself or others, and to support their understanding of the elementary concepts on assessing the performance of a set of homogenous firms, as well as how to correctly adapt mathematics to these concepts step by step, in order to underpin this area and rebuild the foundation and columns of efficiency measurement for further research.
