This book discusses convex analysis, the basic underlying structure of argumentation in economic theory. Convex analysis is also common to the optimization of problems encountered in many applications. The text is aimed at senior undergraduate students, graduate students, and specialists of mathematical programming who are undertaking research into applied mathematics and economics. The text consists of a systematic development in eight chapters, and contains exercises. The book is appropriate as a class text or for self-study.
