Mathematical Methods for Economic Theory: a tutorial
by Martin J. Osborne
Publisher: University of Toronto 2007
Number of pages: 301
This tutorial covers the basic mathematical tools used in economic theory. Knowledge of elementary calculus is assumed; some of the prerequisite material is reviewed in the first section. The main topics are multivariate calculus, concavity and convexity, optimization theory, differential equations, and difference equations. The emphasis throughout is on techniques rather than abstract theory.

In semi-classical analysis many of the basic results involve asymptotic expansions in which the terms can by computed by symbolic techniques and the focus of these lecture notes will be the 'symbol calculus' that this creates.

Goursat's three-volume 'A Course in Mathematical Analysis' remains a classic study and a thorough treatment of the fundamentals of calculus. As an advanced text for students with one year of calculus, it offers an exceptionally lucid exposition.

Introduction and a reference to spectral and inverse spectral theory of Jacobi operators and applications of these theories to the Toda and Kac-van Moerbeke hierarchy. It covers second order difference equations, self-adjoint operators, etc.

Students learn to write proofs while at the same time learning about binary operations, orders, fields, ordered fields, complete fields, complex numbers, sequences, and series. We also review limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration.
