By means of the tool "MiAulario", the students will have access to schemes, lists of exercises, links to complementary material, etc., related to the subject matter.
We do not recommend any particular textbook on this subject. There are many possible books on Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, Difference Equations and related items, even from a point of view of Economics or reportedly addressed to students of Economics and/or Business Administration, that can be found in any "average-size" universitary library.
Perhaps the reference "Mathematical models in the Social, Management and Life Sciences", by D.N. Burghes and A. D. Wood (Ellis Horwood. Chichester, UK. 1984) is an excellent reference to find "case-studies" related to the main concepts to be developed throughout the semester in this subject matter.
For the sake of completeness, we include below a list (not exhaustive, and by no means the only possible one) of texts in Spanish that can be used in the preparation of some lectures.
