*Mathematica for Microeconomics: Learning by Example*
#### John Robert Stinespring, 2002, Academic Press, 222 pp.,
hardcover, includes CD-ROM.
This book is intended for use as a supplemental tool for courses in
advanced microeconomics and mathematical economics. Cogent applications of
the mathematics required to solve problems of microeconomics are presented.
An overview of *Mathematica* as well as tools to build individual
*Mathematica* programs for problem solving are given. In the consumer
theory section,
common problems of consumer optimization are explored. The producer theory
section includes methods of transforming variables and manipulating output
as well as linear algebra procedures. The section on economic dynamics utilizes
the more advanced
mathematical tools of differential and difference equations and the calculus
of variations to study issues ranging from the dynamic adjustments of
markets to the optimal amount of inventory held over time.
