Economic Dynamics
least in the eyes of a computer programmer – but they are straightforward and can
readily be reproduced without any knowledge of computer programming. Further
more, they have been written in such a way that they can easily be adapted for any
similar investigation by the reader.
1.8 Structure and features
This book takes a problem solving, learning by doing approach to economic dy
namics. Chapters 2–5 set out the basic mathematics for continuous and discrete
dynamical systems with some references to economics. Chapter 2 covers continu
ous singleequation dynamics, while chapter 3 deals with discrete singleequation
dynamics. Chapter 4 covers continuous dynamical systems of equations and chap
ter 5 deals with discrete dynamical systems of equations. Chapters 6 and 7 cover
two quite distinct dynamical topics that do not ±t into the continuous/discrete cat
egorisation so neatly. Chapter 6 deals with control theory and chapter 7 with chaos
theory. Both these topics are more advanced, but can be taken up at any stage.
