This updated edition of Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis provides an invaluable introduction to mathematical analysis for economists and students from other social science backgrounds taking a general course in mathematics. The coverage is comprehensive, ranging from elementary algebra to more advanced material, whilst focusing on all the core topics usually taught in undergraduate courses on mathematics for economists. This book is primarily intended for undergraduate courses in Mathematics for Economists at first and second year level. Students are expected to have completed A-level mathematics or at least a preliminary course. However, there is considerable coverage of basic material in early revision or "catch-up" chapters. The book is also appropriate for students of other social sciences who are taking a general mathematics course.
