Mathematics for Economic Analysis (with Knut Sydsæter) was published in 1995 by Prentice Hall. Though this earlier textbook is officially out of print in North America, it has been listed by the publisher Prentice Hall as “available on demand”, meaning that they will reprint it for course adoption. It has more chapters than Essential Mathematics for Economic Analysis; the most important material omitted from the newer book can now be found (somewhat revised) in Further Mathematics for Economic Analysis.
