Problems in context studies, which present the mathematics in a business or economics framework. Updated PowerPoint slides, Excel problems and solutions. "The text is aimed at providing an introductory-level exposition of mathematical methods for economics and business students. In terms of level, pace, complexity of examples and user-friendly style the text is excellent - it genuinely recognises and meets the needs of students with minimal maths background." —Colin Glass, Emeritus Professor, University of Ulster "One of the major strengths of this book is the range of exercises in both drill and applications. Also the 'worked examples' are excellent; they provide examples of the use of mathematics to realistic problems and are easy to follow." —Donal Hurley, formerly of University College Cork "The most comprehensive reader in this topic yet, this book is an essential aid to the avid economist who loathes mathematics!" —Amazon.co.uk

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 has become indispensable in the modelling of economics, finance, business and management. Without expecting any particular background of the reader, this book covers the following mathematical topics, with frequent reference to applications in economics and finance: functions, graphs and equations, recurrences (difference equations), differentiation, exponentials and logarithms, optimisation, partial differentiation, optimisation in several variables, vectors and matrices, linear equations, Lagrange multipliers, integration, first-order and second-order differential equations. The stress is on the relation of maths to economics, and this is illustrated with copious examples and exercises to foster depth of understanding. Each chapter has three parts: the main text, a section of further worked examples and a summary of the chapter together with a selection of problems for the reader to attempt. For students of economics, mathematics, or both, this book provides an introduction to mathematical methods in economics and finance that will be welcomed for its clarity and breadth.

Drawing on his extensive experience teaching in the area, Geoff Renshaw has developed Maths for Economics to enable students to master and apply mathematical principles and methods both in their degrees and their careers. Through the use of a gradual learning gradient and the provision of examples and exercises to constantly reinforce learning, the author has created a resource which students can use to build their confidence - whether coming from a background of a GCSE or A Level course, or more generally for students who feel they need to go back to the very basics. Knowledge is built up in small steps rather than big jumps, and once confident that they have firmly grasped the foundations, the book helps students to make the progression beyond mechanical exercises and on to the development of a maths tool-kit for the analysis of economic and business problems - an invaluable skill for their course and future employment.

This textbook concisely covers math knowledge and tools useful for business and economics studies, including matrix analysis, basic math concepts, general optimization, dynamic optimization, and ordinary differential equations. Basic math tools, particularly optimization tools, are essential for students in a business school, especially for students in economics, accounting, finance, management, and marketing. It is a standard practice nowadays that a graduate program in a business school requires a short and intense course in math just before or immediately after the students enter the program. Math in Economics aims to be the main textbook for such a crash course. The 1st edition was published by People's University Publisher, China. This new edition contains an added chapter on Probability Theory along with changes and improvements throughout.
