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.

The best-selling, best known text in Mathematical Economics course, Chiang teaches the basic mathematical methods indispensable for understanding current economic literature. the book's patient explanations are written in an informal, non-intimidating style. To underscore the relevance of mathematics to economics, the author allows the economist's analytical needs to motivate the study of related mathematical techniques; he then illustrates these techniques with appropriate economics models. Graphic illustrations often visually reinforce algebraic results. Many exercise problems serve as drills and help bolster student confidence. These major types of economic analysis are covered: statics, comparative statics, optimization problems, dynamics, and mathematical programming. These mathematical methods are introduced: matrix algebra, differential and integral calculus, differential equations, difference equations, and convex sets.

Although I have published articles in several journals, I am perhaps most closely identified with the teaching of mathematics to economists via my Fundamental Methods of Mathematical Economics. Now in its third edition, this book grew out of the personal frustration, during my student days as well as the early years of my teaching career, with mathematics books that give overly concise and often enigmatic explanations. Years of compounding of such frustration led me to challenge myself to design a ‘teachable’ book and the result is Fundamental Methods.
A sequel volume is now being planned, to
cover the methods of dynamic optimisation (calculus of variations, optimal control theory) — a topic which is very much in use today, and which needs a ‘teachable’ text.
