This is a textbook devoted to mathematical programming algorithms and the mathematics needed to understand such algorithms. It was mainly written for economists, but the mathematics itself obviously has relevance for other disciplines. It is a textbook as well a~ in parts, a contribution to new knowledge. There is, accordingly, a broad ordering of climbing sophistication, the earlier chapters being purely for the student, the later chapters being more specialist and containing some element of novelty on certain points. The book is edited in five parts. Part I deals with elementary matrix operations, matrix inversion, determinants, etc.
