Book Description

1 Jun 2005 0071238239 978-0071238236 4
It has been twenty years since the last edition of this classic book. Kevin Wainwright (British Columbia University and Simon Fraser University), a long time user of the text, has executed the perfect revision: he has updated examples, applications and theory without changing the elegant, precise presentation style of Alpha Chiang. Readers will find the wait was worthwhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars For You Boffins Only 3 Nov 2009
By demola
The only reason why I'm giving it 4 stars and not 5 is that the very things criticized in the preface about other mathematical books being like "bitter-tasting medicine", well, Mathematical Economics is pretty much that too. The structure is great: Intro, Exposition, Examples, Economic Application. But frankly I only got through the first two-thirds because I already knew some calculus so I made some sense of the dense text. There's way too much notation for any beginning and possibly intermediate student but perhaps just perfect for the aspiring Ph.D. But then surely they won't need all the intro to calculus stuff. So the book suffers from a serious identity crisis: it's too complicated for simpletons but most of the first half is too simple for boffins. Yet I really liked it and wished I could understand more in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise & Excellent Maths reference 25 Nov 2010
Really needed to brush up on my Maths skills for my Masters course & this book has mostly done the trick. It covers all key topics with an approach that's easy to follow.
