Mathematical skills are an unavoidable prerequisite for beginners of a study at a university. This book covers all major subjects from a secondary school education in mathematics which are required for studying successfully. Among others, it deals with mathematical foundations, real numbers, equations and inequalities, geometry, sequences, functions, differentation, integration, vectors and probability theory. The book presents the major facts from each subject and contains many worked examples so that the reader gets practice in solving mathematical problems. At the end of each chapter, exercises from the particular subjects are given. The book will provide the reader with the required mathematical knowledge and tools for a contemporary study in economics, engineering, computer science and other disciplines.

I really like this book, it reminds me of notions that I have forgotten long time ago. So, it provides me with an adventure of rediscovery of long forgotten scientific knowledge.
This is really great. It is simple and easy to understand. An interesting book that every student should have it on his/her side!
I like this booklet and recommend the booklet for students to start their activity in mathematics at the university. In particular, if a student will have difficulties when studying the required mathematical courses, this booklet will be useful to overcome such difficulties easily and soon without looking for different textbooks on mathematics.
I really liked the book :) Especially, derivative and integral part are very well described with many graphs, so that readers can understand the concept easily. I think, this book is really intuitive and would be useful for math beginners. Since the content covers almost all the basic knowledge of mathematics, it helped me a lot to get the idea of general math course and integrate the important concepts that I learned so far. I strongly recommend this book! :)
An interesting math book...Really Clear and concise for a refresher!
Cool....Maths rocks! It's just what I needed; a refresher!
Wow...! Really Good book for revising the basics

About the Author

Frank Werner

Frank Werner was born in Magdeburg, Germany, in 1955. He received a Diploma degree (with honors) from the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Magdeburg, Germany, in 1980. For his Diploma thesis, he received the Faculty Award of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics in 1981. He received his Ph.D. degree (with summa cum laude) from the same university in 1984. In 1987, he had a 5-month research stay in Minsk, Belarus, and a 1-month stay at the Banach center in Warsaw, Poland. In 1989, he defended his Habilitation thesis. In 1992, Werner received a grant from the Alexander-von-Humboldt Foundation for a research stay at the University of Osnabrück, Germany. In 1994, he had a teaching stay at the Uppsala University, Sweden. Currently, he serves as an Extraordinary Professor at the Faculty of Mathematics of the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany. Werner is mainly interested in scheduling problems (exact and heuristic algorithms, complexity, stability, and uncertainty), operations research, and graph theory. He was also a Guest Editor of special issues in Annals of Operations Research, Computers, and Operations Research and International Journal of Production Research and Automation and Remote Control. He has about 230 papers in international journals and book contributions, and he was a referee for more than 35 international journals. Werner is also one of the authors of the textbook Mathematics of Economics and Business (Routledge, 2006), of the monograph Scheduling under Uncertainty: Theory and Algorithms , and one of the editors of the monograph Sequencing and Scheduling with Inaccurate Data (Nova Science Publishers, 2014). He managed several research projects supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and the European Community (INTAS). He is an Associate Editor of International Journal of Production Research (for the area of scheduling and discrete optimization, since 2012), Operations Research and Decisions (since 2014) and of Journal of Scheduling (since 2014). Moreover, he is a member of the Editorial Board of nine further journals.At the university,he presented lectures in mathematics, operations research, scheduling and mathematical economics as well as for extra-occupational study courses.
