The first title in a new series, Basic Mathematics through Applications truly focuses on content relevant to students. Throughout the text, motivating real-world applications, examples, and exercises demonstrate how integral mathematical understanding is to student mastery in other disciplines, a variety of occupations, and everyday situations. A distinctive side-by-side format pairing an example with a corresponding practice exercise encourages students to get actively involved in the mathematical content from the start. Unique Mindstretchers target different levels and types of student understanding in one comprehensive problem set per section incorporating related investigation, critical thinking, reasoning, and pattern recognition exercises along with corresponding group work and historical connections. Compelling Historical Notes give students further evidence that mathematics grew out of a universal need to find efficient solutions to everyday problems. Plenty of practice exercises provide ample opportunity for students to thoroughly master basic mathematics skills and develop confidence in their understanding.

The FUNDAMENTALS OF MATHEMATICS, Tenth Edition, offers a comprehensive and objectives-based review of all basic mathematics concepts. The authors prepare students for further coursework by addressing three important student needs: 1) establishing good study habits and overcoming math anxiety, 2) making the connections between mathematics and their modern, day-to-day activities, and 3) being paced and challenged according to their individual level of understanding whether right out of high school or returning to school later in life. The clear exposition and the consistency of presentation make learning arithmetic accessible for all. Key concepts presented in section objectives and further defined within the context of How and Why provide a strong foundation for learning and lasting comprehension. With a predominant emphasis on problem-solving skills, concepts, and applications based on real world data (with some introductory algebra integrated throughout), this book is suitable for individual study or for a variety of course formats: lab, self-paced, lecture, group, or combined formats.

Offering a uniquely modern, balanced approach, Tussy/Gustafson/Koenig's BASIC COLLEGE MATHEMATICS WITH EARLY INTEGERS, Fifth Edition, integrates the best of traditional drill and practice with the best elements of the reform movement. To many developmental math students, mathematics is like a foreign language. They have difficulty translating the words, their meanings, and how they apply to problem solving. Emphasizing the “language of mathematics,” the text's fully integrated learning process is designed to expand students' reasoning abilities and teach them how to read, write, and think mathematically. It blends instructional approaches that include vocabulary, practice, and well-defined pedagogy with an emphasis on reasoning, modeling, communication, and technology skills.

Algorithmen - Eine Einführung

Der "Cormen" bietet eine umfassende und vielseitige Einführung in das moderne Studium von Algorithmen. Es stellt viele Algorithmen Schritt für Schritt vor, behandelt sie detailliert und macht deren Entwurf und deren Analyse allen Leserschichten zugänglich. Sorgfältige Erklärungen zur notwendigen Mathematik helfen, die Analyse der Algorithmen zu verstehen. Den Autoren ist es dabei geglückt, Erklärungen elementar zu halten, ohne auf Tiefe oder mathematische Exaktheit zu verzichten. Jedes der weitgehend eigenständig gestalteten Kapitel stellt einen Algorithmus, eine Entwurfstechnik, ein Anwendungsgebiet oder ein verwandtes Thema vor. Algorithmen werden beschrieben und in Pseudocode entworfen, der für jeden lesbar sein sollte, der schon selbst ein wenig programmiert hat. Zahlreiche Abbildungen verdeutlichen, wie die Algorithmen arbeiten. Ebenfalls angesprochen werden Belange der Implementierung und andere technische Fragen, wobei, da Effizienz als Entwurfskriterium betont wird, die Ausführungen eine sorgfältige Analyse der Laufzeiten der Programme mit ein schließen. Über 1000 Übungen und Problemstellungen und ein umfangreiches Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis komplettieren das Lehrbuch, dass durch das ganze Studium, aber auch noch danach als mathematisches Nachschlagewerk oder als technisches Handbuch nützlich ist. Für die dritte Auflage wurde das gesamte Buch aktualisiert. Die Änderungen sind vielfältig und umfassen insbesondere neue Kapitel, überarbeiteten Pseudocode, didaktische Verbesserungen und einen lebhafteren Schreibstil. So wurden etwa - neue Kapitel zu van-Emde-Boas-Bäume und mehrfädigen (engl.: multithreaded) Algorithmen aufgenommen, - das Kapitel zu Rekursionsgleichungen überarbeitet, sodass es nunmehr die Teile-und-Beherrsche-Methode besser abdeckt, - die Betrachtungen zu dynamischer Programmierung und Greedy-Algorithmen überarbeitet; Memoisation und der Begriff des Teilproblem-Graphen als eine Möglichkeit, die Laufzeit eines auf dynamischer Programmierung beruhender Algorithmus zu verstehen, werden eingeführt. - 100 neue Übungsaufgaben und 28 neue Problemstellungen ergänzt. Umfangreiches Dozentenmaterial (auf englisch) ist über die Website des US-Verlags verfügbar.

Basic Mathematics for Economists, now in its 3rd edition, is a classic of its genre and this new edition builds on the success of previous editions. Suitable for students who may only have a basic mathematics background, as well as students who may have followed more advanced mathematics courses but who still want a clear explanation of fundamental concepts, this book covers all the basic tenets required for an understanding of mathematics and how it is applied in economics, finance and business. Starting with revisions of the essentials of arithmetic and algebra, students are then taken through to more advanced topics in calculus, comparative statics, dynamic analysis, and matrix algebra, with all topics explained in the context of relevant applications, New features in this third edition reflect the increased emphasis on finance in many economics and related degree courses, with fuller analysis of topics such as: savings and pension schemes, including draw down pensions asset valuation techniques for bond and share prices the application of integration to concepts in economics and finance input-output analysis, using spreadsheets to do matrix algebra calculations In developing new topics the book never loses sight of their applied context and examples are always used to help explain analysis. This book is the most logical, user-friendly book on the market and is usable for mathematics of economics, finance and business courses in all countries.

This book is an introduction to application of Mathematics in Economics for students of disciplines such as economics, finance, business, management, and accounting. It is intended for readers who may have not any background in mathematics, and it will also be appropriate for those with less experience, possibly used in conjunction with one of the many more elementary texts on basic mathematics. Parts of this book arise from a lecture course given by the authors to students of economics, management, accounting and finance, and management sciences. Assuming little or no prior knowledge in mathematics, this market-leading text is a great companion for those who have not studied mathematics in depth before. Breaking topics down into short sections makes each new technique you learn seem less intimidating. This book promotes self learning and study by working through practice problems. The second edition of the book continues the tradition of the first edition by successfully teaching these tools and techniques through presenting them in conjunction with interesting and engaging economic applications. The applications in the text provide students with an understanding of the use of mathematics in economics. The applications also motivate the study of the material, develop mathematical comprehension and hone economic intuition.
