ab: This is a user-friedly textbook with a wide selection of worked examples,
progress exercises with solutions, test exercises, and a lot of
real-world applications. The text refers to Excel, but it also can be
used without touching on the Excel sections. Here is the contents:
Mathematical preliminaries, the straight line, simultaneous equations,
nonlinear functions, financial mathematics, differentiation, functions
of several variables, integration, linear algebra, difference
equations, all chapters with applications. All in all a remarkable
book, and I would warmly recommend it for students of economics and
business.
