Preface of Business Economics and Finance with Matlab, GIS, and Simulation Models by Patrick L.Anderson
This book is organized into chapters, each covering a topic. Sections in each of the chapters describe in more detail one aspect of the topic. Most readers will want to read a few chapters immediately and then return to cover specific topics as their interests warrant.
This text is primarily designed for two audiences:
- Economists, finance and valuation professionals, market researchers, public policy analysts, and other practitioners whose occupation demands the ability to model market behavior under a variety of real-world conditions
- Teachers or students in graduate-level classes in applied economics, particularly those who cover topics such as fiscal and economic impact analysis, fuzzy logic applications, retail sales analysis, and the integration of geographic information systems, as this is one of the very few books to rigorously cover these subjects The book may also be used by those interested in specialized topics rarely covered in economics texts, such as those listed above, and by those who have extensive background in mathematical or simulation models (such as MATLAB and Simulink) and wish to extend their knowledge.

The organization of this book allows you to read those portions most relevant to the work you are doing at present, in particular: • Regardless of whether you are new to business economics or a veteran, read the brief “Maxims of Business Economics” on page 15.
• If you are new to the use of simulation models, it is best to start at the beginning. Go through the chapters that explain the MATLAB and Simulink environment, how to get your data, and creating and using library functions. Then jump to the most interesting application chapters.
• If you are focused on one type of application and have a working familiarity with MATLAB or Simulink, finish this chapter and then jump straight to the application chapters. Be prepared to review information in the earlier chapters or in the appendices.
• If you are currently using MATLAB or Simulink and are looking for suggested approaches or troubleshooting information, scan the chapters on troubleshooting in the appendices, any relevant application chapters, and the early chapters on design guidelines, getting your data, and library functions.
• If you want to learn about using MATLAB and Simulink on the Internet, jump to that chapter but be prepared to refer to other areas.
