New students of economics often wonder what kind of books they should read and there are many excellent economics books out there, but often these are not recognized, especially in the USA, because many professors and economics departments look for the deals from the publishers instead of the contents of the books. It is especially difficult to find mathematics books that would concentrate around your major. It often happens that after you have selected economics as your major and passed through all those heavy calculus classes, you are still wondering how exactly was all that relevant to economics, besides learning how to differentiate and integrate. The problem is that calculus classes are regularly geared toward engineering or science majors and other students have to conduct their own research for finding the applications relevant to their major. Hence, if you wish to understand mathematics from the economics point of view and get familiar with the mathematical tools used in economic literature, I would highly recommend you to take a look at this book. Since I could not learn from that textbook while attending the university, I decided to pick it up after my graduation.

From the Back Cover: Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis, 2nd Edition Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis, 2nd Edition, provides an invaluable introduction to the mathematical tools that undergraduate economists need.
Large selection of worked examples throughout the book. These are not just specific to economics, as most topics are first dealt with from a purely mathematical point of view before providing economic insight. Large number of problems for students to solve. Answers to selected questions included in the back of the book. All chapters revised and updated. Even more economic examples and problem material added.
Extensive resources for students and lecturers on the companion website. It is exemplary in finding the right balance between mathematics and economic examples. Roelof J. Stroeker, Erasmus University, Rotterdam. I found that the style of writing promotes interest and manages to allow intuitive understanding whilst not sacrificing mathematical precision and rigour.
He has also given graduate courses in dynamic optimization at Berkeley and Gothenborg. He has written and co-authored a number of books, of which several have been translated into many languages. Peter Hammond is a Professor of Economics at Stanford University, where he moved in after holding the same position at the University of Essex. He has published more than 90 academic papers in journals and books, mostly on economic theory and mathematical economics.
It presents most of the mathematical tools that are required for advanced courses in economic theory — both micro and macro.
Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis
The scope of the book is to be applauded Dr Michael Reynolds, University of Bradford Excellent book on calculus with several economic applications Mauro Bambi, University of York The introductory chapters have been restructured to more logically fit with teaching. Several new exercises have been introduced, as well as fuller solutions to existing ones. More coverage of the history of mathematical and economic ideas has been added, as well as of the scientists who developed them. New example based on the UK reform of housing taxation illustrating how a discontinuous function can have significant economic consequences. The associated material in MyMathLab has been expanded and improved. Knut Sydsaeter was Emeritus Professor of Mathematics in the Economics Department at the University of Oslo, where he had taught mathematics for economists for over 45 years.
