Abstract

In this paper we present some elements of calculus for economics: the chain rule and extended chain rule for calculation of derivatives of composite functions, and differentiation of functions defined implicitly. The emphasis, as always in this series, is in providing a pedagogical, intuitive presentation to these topics.

Keywords: Calculus, Chainrule, Implicitderivatives
