Mathematical Methods for Economic Theory: a tutorial
by

Publisher: University of Toronto
Number of pages: 301

Description:
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.
