Course: Mathematical Economics, a course taken by economics majors in their third or fourth year. They will have had principles of economics (both micro and macro) and at least one calculus class. In most cases, this course will be the student's first exposure to integrating sophisticated mathematical models with economic theory. The text can also be used as a first course for students about to enter graduate studies. The market is small but the potential is great. Watch comps. Everyone will want a copy.
Overview: It has been 20 years since the last edition of this classic text. Kevin Wainwright, a long time user of the text (British Columbia University and Simon Fraser University), 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.
