This book finds the right balance between mathematics and economic examples, providing a text that is demanding in level and broad ranging in content, whilst remaining accessible and interesting to its target audience.
Peter Hammond is currently the Marie Curie Professor of Economics at the University of Warwick and Emeritus Professor at Stanford University. His many publications extend over several different fields of economics. Knut Sydsaeter, Atle Seistan and Arne Strom all have extensive experience in teaching mathematics for economics in the Department of Economics at the University of Oslo.
