Fundamental methods of mathematical economics

Author: Alpha C Chiang; Kevin Wainwright
Publisher: Boston, Mass. : McGraw-Hill/Irwin, ©2005.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 4th edView all editions and formats
Summary:
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.
