Treating the mathematical methods used in the economic dynamics, this book shows how they are utilised to build and analyse dynamical models. Accordingly, the focus is on the methods, and every new mathematical technique introduced is followed by its application to select economic models. The mathematical methods covered range from elementary linear difference and differential equations and simultaneous systems to the qualitative analysis of non-linear dynamical systems. Stability considerations are stressed throughout, including many advanced topics. Bifurcation theory and chaos theory are also dealt with. The reader is guided through a step-by-step analysis of each topic, be it a mathematical method or an economic model. This "user-friendly" feature is also present in the exercises.
