## Calculus

*An Intuitive and Physical Approach (Second Edition)*

**Author**: Morris Kline**Publisher:**Courier Corporation**ISBN:**0486134768**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**960**View:**2293

Application-oriented introduction relates the subject as closely as possible to science with explorations of the derivative; differentiation and integration of the powers of x; theorems on differentiation, antidifferentiation; the chain rule; trigonometric functions; more. Examples. 1967 edition.

## Lectures on the Mathematical Method in Analytical Economics

**Author**: Jacob T. Schwartz**Publisher:**Courier Dover Publications**ISBN:**0486828034**Category:**Business & Economics**Page:**304**View:**1423

An early but still useful and frequently cited contribution to the science of mathematical economics, this volume is geared toward graduate students in the field. Prerequisites include familiarity with the basic theory of matrices and linear transformations and with elementary calculus. Author Jacob T. Schwartz begins his treatment with an exploration of the Leontief input-output model, which forms a general framework for subsequent material. An introductory treatment of price theory in the Leontief model is followed by an examination of the business-cycle theory, following ideas pioneered by Lloyd Metzler and John Maynard Keynes. In the final section, Schwartz applies the teachings of previous chapters to a critique of the general equilibrium approach devised by Léon Walras as the theory of supply and demand, and he synthesizes the notions of Walras and Keynes. 1961 edition.

## Dynamical Systems

## Rings and Homology

**Author**: James P. Jans**Publisher:**Courier Dover Publications**ISBN:**0486801896**Category:**Mathematics**Page:**96**View:**2476

This concise text is geared toward students of mathematics who have completed a basic college course in algebra. Combining material on ring structure and homological algebra, the treatment offers advanced undergraduate and graduate students practice in the techniques of both areas. After a brief review of basic concepts, the text proceeds to an examination of ring structure, with particular attention to the structure of semisimple rings with minimum condition. Subsequent chapters develop certain elementary homological theories, introducing the functor Ext and exploring the various projective dimensions, global dimension, and duality theory. Each chapter concludes with a set of exercises.
