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.

Review Quotes
Elena Kustova, Saint Petersburg University
 “For non-mathematicians who just use math in their professional activity I believe this is a very helpful source of knowledge, and also a very efficient reference.”
Jaroslav Kmenta, University of Michigan

“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.”
