  • People in business, economics and the social sciences are increasingly aware of the need to be able to handle a range of mathematical tools. This course is designed to fill this need by extending the 100 courses in Mathematics and Statistics into several even more practical and powerful areas of mathematics. It is not just forecasting and index numbers that have uses. Such things as differential equations and stochastic processes, for example, do have direct, frequent and practical applications to everyday management situations. This course is intended to extend your mathematical ability and interests beyond the knowledge acquired in earlier 100 courses. Throughout the mathematical and quantitative courses of the degrees we attempt to emphasise the applications of mathematics for m...

  • Mathematics for Economics and Business provides a thorough foundation in mathematical methods for economics, business studies and accountancy students. Assuming little prior knowledge, this informal text is a great companion for those who have not studied maths in depth before. This book truly promotes self-study as students are encouraged to tackle problems as they go along and can see fully worked examples to help their understanding. Both beginners and more advanced students will find material in this book relevant to their needs.

  • Today, a firm understanding of mathematics is essential for any serious student of economics. Students of economics need nowadays several important mathematical tools. These include calculus for functions of one or several variables as well as a basic understanding of optimization with and without constraints, e.g. linear programming plays an important role in optimizing production programs. Linear algebra is used in economic theory and econometrics. Students in other areas of economics can benefit for instance from some knowledge about differential and difference equations or mathematical problems arising in finance. The more complex economics becomes, the more deep mathematics is required and used. Today economists consider mathematics as the most important tool of economics and b...
