Mathematical Methods for Economic Theory (Martin J. Osborne)

This book offers an overview of the mathematical ideas required for thoroughly understanding the foundations of economic theory.

With the aid of these mathematical tools, students can more accurately define concepts and apply them to events in the real world as well as to issues with forecasting, risk, and decision-making that arise in economics.

The fundamental mathematical techniques utilized in economic theory are covered. It is expected that you have a basic understanding of calculus; some of the prerequisite material is revisited in the first session. Differential equations, difference equations, optimization theory, concavity and convexity, and multivariate calculus are the key topics.

Techniques are emphasized rather than general ideas. The circumstances under which each technique is relevant are, however, clearly defined.
