Mathematical Economics by Jeffrey Baldani
Emphasising interesting and challenging economic applications of mathematics, this text is suitable for courses in mathematical economics at the undergraduate level. Chapters are organised in pairs so that a chapter on economic applications follows a chapter on mathematical theory. Macro applications include ISLM and the Keynesian model, and Micro applications include the Cobb-Douglas model, and utility and profit maximisation. Also covered are the economic applications of static and dynamic game theory. Features: * Chapters are organized in pairs where a chapter on mathematical theory is followed by a chapter on economic applications. This approach allows for flexibility so instructors can tailor the course to their needs. * Macroeconomic applications include ISLM and the Keynesian model, and microeconomic applications include the Cobb-Douglas model, and utility and profit maximization. * Each chapter (except Chapter 1) includes extensive end-of-chapter problems. The solutions to these problems are provided in the Instructor's Manual. * An appendix reviews basic calculus to refresh students' memories. * Economic applications of static and dynamic game theory are covered. * An extensive treatment of constrained optimization includes discussion of inequality constraints and duality.
