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.

Fuzzy Sets and Economics presents a clear and concise introduction to fuzzy mathematics and demonstrates its adaptability to the analysis of oligopolistic competition. In particular, the author indicates how the economic evaluation of non-cooperative oligopoly markets is changed when fuzzy set mathematics is used. The neo-classical view that oligopolistic competition is inefficient is shown only to apply in the short run while policy matters, such as antitrust, and some basic economic fundamentals, such as the supply-demand paradigm, are affected by the introduction of a fuzzy mathematics framework.

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.
