ab: As the title suggests, this is not a book for mathematicians. Nevertheless,
it provides a solid and sufficiently precise foundation of mathematical
tools (mainly from calculus, linear algebra, discrete mathematics and
optimization) which are useful (actually, indispensable) for economics
and finance. The book consists of five parts with the following
headings: 1. Foundations; 2. Optimization (one variable); 3.
Mathematics of finance; 4. Optimization (several variables); 5. Further
topics. More on contents and style may be found in the publisher’s
description of [Maths for economics. 2nd ed. Oxford: Oxford University
Press (2009; Zbl 1232.91003)].
