"This excellent little gem of a book stresses exactly what students of economics need to learn about optimization."--Henry Thompson, Auburn University
"Much improved from first edition. Excellent text for sophisticated upperclassmen, graduate students, and rusty practicing economists."--Bill Lord, University of Maryland
On the first edition: "Dixit presents an extremely clear and lucid introduction to the methods and applications of optimization in economics....This book would serve as an excellent supplementary reading for advanced undergraduate or first year graduate students in microeconomic theory or mathematical economics courses."--Choice
From the Back Cover
This revised edition includes a new chapter on uncertainty, with applications to portfolio selection and the economics of information, and a fuller treatment of dynamic programming, with applications to search theory.The book is aimed at second and third year undergraduates taking macroeconomics courses with some quantitative content. It should also provide a simpler alternative to many postgraduate texts.
