For each of the three major topics, the underlying theory is covered in detail, including the theory of the multivariate derivative, a general implicit curve theorem, the Lagrange multipliers and the Kuhn-Tucker conditions. There are many exercises, involving both hand computation and theorem proving and numerical problems done on a spreadsheet program. Emphasis on application problems throughout.
