This is the substantially revised and restructured second edition of Ron Shone's successful undergraduate and gradute textbook Economic Dynamics.

The book provides a detailed coverage of dynamics and phase diagrams including: quantitative and qualitative dynamic systems, continuous and discrete dynamics, linear and nonlinear systems and single equation and systems of equations. It illustrates dynamic systems using Mathematica and provides many detailed routines in the body of the text and appendices. It provides a thorough introduction to phase diagrams and their economic application and explains the nature of saddle path solutions. There are over 120 exercises contained in the book with brief answers. The Cambridge University Press web site provides a Solutions manual in Mathematica notebooks to all exercises. Contents
