Summary 
"In this volume, Rakesh V. Vohra sets out the basic concepts of mathematics as they relate to economics. The book divides the mathematical problems that arise in economic theory into three types: feasibility problems, optimality problems and fixedpoint problems. Of particular salience to modern economic thought are sections on lattices, supermodularity, matroids and their applications. In a departure from the prevailing fashion, much greater attention is devoted to linear programming and its applications." "Of interest to advanced students of economics as well as those seeking a greater understanding of the influence of mathematics on 'the dismal science'. Advanced Mathematical Economics follows a long and celebrated tradition of the application of mathematical concepts to the social and physical sciences."BOOK JACKET
