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 semi-classical analysis many of the basic results involve asymptotic expansions in which the terms can by computed by symbolic techniques and the focus of these lecture notes will be the 'symbol calculus' that this creates.

This paper treats the fundamentals of the multivector differential calculus part of geometric calculus. The multivector differential is introduced, followed by the multivector derivative and the adjoint of multivector functions.
