  • Clear explanation of concepts, theorems, related examples, and exercises.


Concave analysis deals mainly with concave and quasi-concave functions, although convex and quasi-convex functions are considered because of their mutual inherent relationship. The aim of Elements of Concave Analysis and Applications is to provide a basic and self‐contained introduction to concepts and detailed study of concave and convex functions. It is written in the style of a textbook, designed for courses in mathematical economics, finance, and manufacturing design. The suggested prerequisites are multivariate calculus, ordinary and elementary PDEs, and elementary probability theory.
