Mathematical Methods for Economic Theory: a tutorial
by Martin J. Osborne
Publisher: University of Toronto 2007
Number of pages: 301
This tutorial covers the basic mathematical tools used in economic theory. Knowledge of elementary calculus is assumed; some of the prerequisite material is reviewed in the first section. The main topics are multivariate calculus, concavity and convexity, optimization theory, differential equations, and difference equations. The emphasis throughout is on techniques rather than abstract theory.

In these notes we try to familiarize the audience with the theory of Bernoulli polynomials; we study their properties, and we give, with proofs and references, some of the most relevant results related to them. Several applications are presented.

We provide a formal introduction into the classic theorems of general topology and its axiomatic foundations in set theory. The exposition in this first part includes relation and order theory as well as a construction of number systems.
