"The book cleanly separates the mathematical theory from the economic applications. Mathematicians, as well as economists, will value this book as a basic, helpful handbook on finite-dimensional fixed-point theorems." Joel Franklin, SIAM Review
"Perhaps the book's greatest strength is that the level of mathematical sophistication it requires is uniform throughout." Timothy J. Kehoe, Journal of Economic Literature
"The organization of the material is novel and interesting and should make the book a useful reference work and perhaps a textbook for a rigorous class on static equilibrium theory of finite competitive economics." Erwin Klein, Mathematical Reviews
An introduction to fixed point theory, a body of mathematical techniques for proposing conditions under which sets of assumptions (underlying economic models) have solutions.
