Mathematics for Economics and Finance

Methods and Modelling

Author: Martin Anthony,Norman Biggs

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139643266

Category: Mathematics

Page: N.A

View: 8382

Mathematics has become indispensable in the modelling of economics, finance, business and management. Without expecting any particular background of the reader, this book covers the following mathematical topics, with frequent reference to applications in economics and finance: functions, graphs and equations, recurrences (difference equations), differentiation, exponentials and logarithms, optimisation, partial differentiation, optimisation in several variables, vectors and matrices, linear equations, Lagrange multipliers, integration, first-order and second-order differential equations. The stress is on the relation of maths to economics, and this is illustrated with copious examples and exercises to foster depth of understanding. Each chapter has three parts: the main text, a section of further worked examples and a summary of the chapter together with a selection of problems for the reader to attempt. For students of economics, mathematics, or both, this book provides an introduction to mathematical methods in economics and finance that will be welcomed for its clarity and breadth.

Mathematics and Its History

From a review of the second edition: "This book covers many interesting topics not usually covered in a present day undergraduate course, as well as certain basic topics such as the development of the calculus and the solution of polynomial equations. The fact that the topics are introduced in their historical contexts will enable students to better appreciate and understand the mathematical ideas involved...If one constructs a list of topics central to a history course, then they would closely resemble those chosen here." (David Parrott, Australian Mathematical Society) This book offers a collection of historical essays detailing a large variety of mathematical disciplines and issues; it’s accessible to a broad audience. This third edition includes new chapters on simple groups and new sections on alternating groups and the Poincare conjecture. Many more exercises have been added as well as commentary that helps place the exercises in context.

Mathematics of the 19th Century

Mathematical Logic, Algebra, Number Theory, Probability Theory

New Edition - New in Paperback - This is the second revised edition of the first volume of the outstanding collection of historical studies of mathematics in the nineteenth century compiled in three volumes by A. N. Kolmogorov and A. P. Yushkevich. This second edition was carefully revised by Abe Shenitzer, York University, Ontario, Canada. The historical period covered in this book extends from the early nineteenth century up to the end of the 1930s, as neither 1801 nor 1900 are, in themselves, turning points in the history of mathematics, although each date is notable fo a remarkable event: the first for the publication of Gauss' "Disquisitiones arithmeticae," the second for Hilbert's "Mathematical Problems." Beginning in the second quarter of the nineteenth century mathematics underwent a revolution as crucial and profound in its consequences for the general world outlook as the mathematical revolution in the beginning of the modern era. The main changes included a new statement of the problem of the existence of mathematical objects, particulary in the calculus, and soon thereafter the formation of non-standard structures in geometry, arithmetic and algebra. The primary objective of the work has been to treat the evolution of mathematics in the nineteenth century as a whole; the discussion is concentrated on the essential concepts, methods, and algorithms.

A Unified Approach to the Finite Element Method and Error Analysis Procedures

Author: Julian A. T. Dow

Publisher: Elsevier

ISBN: 9780080543420

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 533

View: 9592

A Unified Approach to the Finite Element Method and Error Analysis Procedures provides an in-depth background to better understanding of finite element results and techniques for improving accuracy of finite element methods. Thus, the reader is able to identify and eliminate errors contained in finite element models. Three different error analysis techniques are systematically developed from a common theoretical foundation: 1) modeling erros in individual elements; 2) discretization errors in the overall model; 3) point-wise errors in the final stress or strain results. Thoroughly class tested with undergraduate and graduate students. A Unified Approach to the Finite Element Method and Error Analysis Procedures is sure to become an essential resource for students as well as practicing engineers and researchers. New, simpler element formulation techniques, model-independent results, and error measures New polynomial-based methods for identifying critical points New procedures for evaluating sheer/strain accuracy Accessible to undergraduates, insightful to researchers, and useful to practitioners Taylor series (polynomial) based Intuitive elemental and point-wise error measures Essential background information provided in 12 appendices

In recent years the study of numerical methods for solving ordinary differential equations has seen many new developments. This second edition of the author's pioneering text is fully revised and updated to acknowledge many of these developments. It includes a complete treatment of linear multistep methods whilst maintaining its unique and comprehensive emphasis on Runge-Kutta methods and general linear methods. Although the specialist topics are taken to an advanced level, the entry point to the volume as a whole is not especially demanding. Early chapters provide a wide-ranging introduction to differential equations and difference equations together with a survey of numerical differential equation methods, based on the fundamental Euler method with more sophisticated methods presented as generalizations of Euler. Features of the book include Introductory work on differential and difference equations. A comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of solving ordinary differential equations numerically. A detailed analysis of Runge-Kutta methods and of linear multistep methods. A complete study of general linear methods from both theoretical and practical points of view. The latest results on practical general linear methods and their implementation. A balance between informal discussion and rigorous mathematical style. Examples and exercises integrated into each chapter enhancing the suitability of the book as a course text or a self-study treatise. Written in a lucid style by one of the worlds leading authorities on numerical methods for ordinary differential equations and drawing upon his vast experience, this new edition provides an accessible and self-contained introduction, ideal for researchers and students following courses on numerical methods, engineering and other sciences.

Now available in a low-priced paperback edition! Written by one of the foremost mathematicians of the 20th century, this text remains the only modern treatment to successfully integrate principles of analysis into first-year calculus. Further, Courant's treatment introduces the differential and integral calculus simultaneously, emphasizing the central point of the calculus, namely, the connection between definite integral, indefinite integral, and derivative. Exposition exhibits the close connection between analysis and its applications, making this text appropriate for students of mathematics, or of science and engineering. Courant makes the subject easier to grasp by giving proofs step-by-step, and by developing the intuition that gave rise to the calculus and guides its use today.

These 6 volumes -- the result of a 10 year collaboration between the authors, both distinguished international figures -- compile the mathematical knowledge required by researchers in mechanics, physics, engineering, chemistry and other branches of application of mathematics for the theoretical and numerical resolution of physical models on computers. The advent of high-speed computers has made it possible to calculate values from models accurately and rapidly. Researchers and engineers thus have a crucial means of using numerical results to modify and adapt arguments and experiments along the way.
