Economics is, of course, a field that
involves a lot of mathematics.
After all, the amount of money you have
is a number, and you want that number to
be as big as it can get, right? There are
whole fields of mathematics designed to
help you do just that.
One field of mathematics with a lot of
business application is finite math.
Finite mathematics includes things like
matrix algebra, probability &
statistics, and even game theory.
What is game theory? It's the
mathematical description of the best
strategies for games or decision-making
MATHEMATICS OF FINANCE
(assumes basic math background, a
little algebra, but try it even
if you don't know algebra!)
TO LINEAR ALGEBRA & MATRICES
(assumes a basic knowledge of
algebra, but no knowledge of
that you are familiar with
matrices; the first section,
linear programming, assumes only
- GAME AND
DECISION THEORY (assumes that you
are familiar with linear
programming, the simplex method,
and matrices in general)

to find the patterns in it)
