Mathematics for Economists
Distributed for Karolinum Press, Charles University
As the field of economics becomes ever more specialized and complicated, so does the mathematics required of economists. With Mathematics for Economists, expert mathematician Viatcheslav V. Vinogradov offers a straightforward, practical textbook for students in economics—for whom mathematics is not a scientific or philosophical subject but a practical necessity. Focusing on the most important fields of economics, the book teaches apprentice economists to apply mathematical algorithms and methods to economic analysis, while abundant exercises and problem sets allow them to test what they’ve learned.

“Extremely well done. It provides a wonderful resource for students in mastering the mathematics needed for the serious study of economics. The author has wisely decided to put emphasis on understanding over abstract proofing, which for economists would be more of an intellectual luxury than of practical use.”
