Finite Mathematics (Fifth Edition)Stefan Waner and Steven R. Costenoble, Brooks/Cole, CENGAGE Learning, Boston, 2011, 2077, xvii+618 pp, Appendix 44pp.   Now in its fifth edition, this book may be used for a one or two-term course in “finite mathematics” for students majoring in business, the social sciences and the liberal arts. It gives a quick entry into the essentials of matrix algebra needed for solving systems of linear equations and linear programming problems. It also gives an introduction to the use of matrices in two-person games in game theory and in the construction of input-output models.
