A unique approach to the treatment of "nonlinear" problems in Economics by using the existing, and freely accessible, on-line tools for solving nonlinear mathematical economics models, normally limited to "graphic" presentations
A very distinct feature is the concrete tackling of Real World Problems throughout, using mathematical models, and as much as possible, actual data in the process of operationalizing and solving the models
The self-contained nature of the textbook is evidenced by the large number of economic examples specified and solved in each chapter
Exercise sections of chapters contain a large number of problems covering application of the chapter's material in the various fields of economics
Under the assumption of a basic knowledge of algebra and analysis, micro and macro economics, this self-contained and self-sufficient textbook is targeted towards upper undergraduate audiences in economics and related fields such as business, management and the applied social sciences. The basic economics core ideas and theories are exposed and developed, together with the corresponding mathematical formulations. From the basics, progress is rapidly made to sophisticated nonlinear, economic modelling and real-world problem solving. Extensive exercises are included, and the textbook is particularly well-suited for computer-assisted learning.
