Basic mathematics for economics students - Theory and applications
Economic theories can be expressed in words, numbers, graphs and symbols. The existing traditional economics textbooks cover all four methods, but the general focus is often more on writing about the theory and methods, with few practical examples.
With an increasing number of universities having introduced mathematical economics at undergraduate level, Basic mathematics
for economics students aims to fill this gap in the field.
Basic mathematics for economics students begins with a comprehensive chapter on basic mathematical concepts and methods (suitable for self-study, revision or tutorial purposes) to ensure that students have the necessary foundation. The book is written in an accessible style and is extremely practical. Numerous mathematical economics examples and exercises are provided as well as fully worked solutions using numbers, graphs and symbols.
Contents include the following:
• Linear and non-linear mathematics
• Keynesian model of the economy
• Differential calculus
• Basic mathematics of finance
• Partial differential calculus
• Integral calculus
• Linear programming
Basic mathematics for economics students is aimed at all economics students. It focuses on quantitative aspects and especially complements the three highly popular theoretical economics textbooks, Understanding microeconomics, Understanding macroe- conomics and Economics for South African students, all written by Philip Mohr and published by Van Schaik Publishers.
