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.

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 book is concerned with an attempt to introduce the infinitesimals and the other 'nonstandard' numbers in a naive, simpleminded way. Nevertheless, the resulting theory is hoped to be mathematically sound, and to be complete within obvious limits.
