The concept of equilibrium plays a central role in various applied sciences, such as physics (especially, mechanics), economics, engineering, transportation, sociology, chemistry, biology and other fields. If one can formulate the equilibrium problem in the form of a mathematical model, solutions of the corresponding problem can be used for forecasting the future behavior of very complex systems and, also, for correcting the the current state of the system under control.

This book presents a unifying look on different equilibrium concepts in economics, including several models from related sciences.

"By presenting a unifying view on equilibrium concepts in economics in an accessible and elegant way, this book fills an important gap in the xisting literature. It is recommended to researchers and graduate students working in theoretical aspects of mathematical equilibrium and/or applications to economic equilibrium models. However, a careful selection from the topics of the book together with necessary simplifications could also be used in an undergraduate course."--Mathematical Reviews
