Fundamental methods of mathematical economics / Alpha C. Chiang, Kevin Wainwright.

By: Chiang, Alpha C.
Contributor(s): Wainwright, Kevin.
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Boston, Mass. : McGraw-Hill/Irwin, c2005Edition: 4th ed.Description: xix, 688 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.ISBN: 0071238239; 0070109109 (alk. paper); 9780070109100.Subject(s): Economics, MathematicalDDC classification: 330.0151 Online resources: WorldCat details | Ebook Fulltext
Contents:
Table of contents The nature of mathematical economics -- Economic models -- Equilibrium analysis in economics -- Linear models and matrix algebra -- Linear models and matrix algebra (continued) -- Comparative statics and the concept of derivative -- Rules of differentiation and their use in comparative statics -- Comparative-static analysis of general-function models -- Optimization : a special variety of equilibrium analysis -- Exponential and logarithmic functions -- The case of more than one choice variable -- Optimization with equality constraints -- Further topics in optimization -- Economic dynamics and integral calculus -- Continuous time : first-order differential equations -- Higher-order differential equations -- Discrete time : first-order difference equations -- Higher-order difference equations -- Simulationeous differential equations and difference equations -- Optimal control theory.
Summary: It has been 20 years since the last edition of this classic text. Kevin Wainwright, a long time user of the text (British Columbia University and Simon Fraser University), has executed the perfect revision--he has updated examples, applications and theory without changing the elegant, precise presentation style of Alpha Chiang. Readers will find the wait was worthwhile.
