This is a fully revised edition of the successful text, Introductory Mathematics for Economists. Updated throughout, it covers the essential mathematics required by students of economics and business. The emphasis is on applying mathematics rather than providing theorems, and a wide range of applications are covered with detailed answers provided for many of the exercises. The book is structured, and the material deliberately selected, to increase in difficulty as the book progresses. Subjects covered include: algebra; linear equations, with immediate applications in simple economic models of markets and the national economy; natural generalizations of elementary matrix algebra and non-linear equations; applications in finance; the groundwork for calculus; profit maximization for a firm, simple inventory models, and other applications of marginal concepts; integration covering both standard analytical techniques and numerical methods; partial differentiation; linear programming; and dynamic relationships in continuous terms and in discrete terms. Three appendices provide extensive treatment of trigonometric functions, an introduction to set theory, and detailed answers to all exercises provided.

Essential Statistics for Economics, Business and Management assumes no prior knowledge of statistics. It will also be highly relevant for the statistics component of courses in quantitative methods. The style of the book is similar to that of the highly successful Essential Mathematics for Economics and Business by Teresa Bradley and Paul Patton, with many worked examples integrated throughout. Emphasis is placed on verbalising concepts, problems and results of statistical analysis. This will help students learn how to start a problem, complete the calculations, and report the results in a way that makes sense to a non-statistician. Each concept is introduced with a brief but plausible explanation followed by Worked Examples. The Worked Examples will provide students with the necessary practice that they need in order to succeed at the subject. Emphasis is also placed on ?learning through doing? problems. Excel is used to encourage students in doing problems and to enhance understanding (with links to datasets online). Minitab printouts are also included in the text. Skills Development Exercises with brief solutions are included within the chapters, and Progress Exercises on theory and applications are provided at the end of each chapter. Solutions to all the worked examples and progress exercises are available as an appendix. Web-based supplementary materials will be provided for lecturers adopting the text, including additonal exercises and solutions, excel datasets and exercises, powerpoint slides with key formula, figures and tables. Students can access an online glossary and weblinks.

Mathematics is the language of science. As such, it is a basic tool for gaining knowledge in any scientific discipline. Students often wonder why mathematics subjects are also included in economics and business studies. Any economist should be fluent in mathematical language and capable of applying mathematics in the analysis, modelling and solving of economic problems. This book covers a broad range of mathematics topics, all of which are essential to gaining the skills required in economics and business professions. Along with theoretical explanations, essential for correctly understanding the concepts involved, it includes a large number of numerical examples. Each chapter is concluded by a collection of exercises with solutions and a self-assessment test, which are key components of the learning process for each topic.

Die Macht der Gewohnheit: Warum wir tun, was wir tun

Seit kurzem versuchen Hirnforscher, Verhaltenspsychologen und Soziologen gemeinsam neue Antworten auf eine uralte Frage zu finden: Warum tun wir eigentlich, was wir tun? Was genau prägt unsere Gewohnheiten? Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Forschung wie dem Alltag erzählt Charles Duhigg von der Macht der Routine und kommt dem Mechanismus, aber auch den dunklen Seiten der Gewohnheit auf die Spur. Er erklärt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt und wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Nicht zuletzt schildert er, wie Konzerne Millionen ausgeben, um unsere Angewohnheiten für ihre Zwecke zu manipulieren. Am Ende wird eines klar: Die Macht von Gewohnheiten prägt unser Leben weit mehr, als wir es ahnen.

FEATURES An intelligent approach to teaching mathematics, based on years of experience. Mathematical rigour and a strong focus on mathematical reasoning. Large selection of worked examples throughout the book. These are not just specific to economics, as most topics are first dealt with from a purely mathematical point of view before providing economic insight. Large number of problems for students to solve. Answers to selected questions included in the back of the book. CHANGES TO THIS EDITION New Chapter 17 on linear programming. All chapters revised and updated. Even more economic examples and problem material added. Extensive resources for students and lecturers on the companion website. 'The book is by far the best choice one can make for a course on mathematics for economists. It is exemplary in finding the right balance between mathematics and economic examples.' Dr. Roelof J. Stroeker, Erasmus University, Rotterdam. 'The writing style is superb. I found that the style of writing promotes interest and manages to allow intuitive understanding whilst not sacrificing mathematical precision and rigour.'

Wenn Sie programmieren können, beherrschen Sie bereits Techniken, um aus Daten Wissen zu extrahieren. Diese kompakte Einführung in die Statistik zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie rechnergestützt, anstatt auf mathematischem Weg Datenanalysen mit Python durchführen können. Praktischer Programmier-Workshop statt grauer Theorie: Das Buch führt Sie anhand eines durchgängigen Fallbeispiels durch eine vollständige Datenanalyse -- von der Datensammlung über die Berechnung statistischer Kennwerte und Identifikation von Mustern bis hin zum Testen statistischer Hypothesen. Gleichzeitig werden Sie mit statistischen Verteilungen, den Regeln der Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung, Visualisierungsmöglichkeiten und vielen anderen Arbeitstechniken und Konzepten vertraut gemacht. Statistik-Konzepte zum Ausprobieren: Entwickeln Sie über das Schreiben und Testen von Code ein Verständnis für die Grundlagen von Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und Statistik: Überprüfen Sie das Verhalten statistischer Merkmale durch Zufallsexperimente, zum Beispiel indem Sie Stichproben aus unterschiedlichen Verteilungen ziehen. Nutzen Sie Simulationen, um Konzepte zu verstehen, die auf mathematischem Weg nur schwer zugänglich sind. Lernen Sie etwas über Themen, die in Einführungen üblicherweise nicht vermittelt werden, beispielsweise über die Bayessche Schätzung. Nutzen Sie Python zur Bereinigung und Aufbereitung von Rohdaten aus nahezu beliebigen Quellen. Beantworten Sie mit den Mitteln der Inferenzstatistik Fragestellungen zu realen Daten.
