Title: Nonstandard Analysis with Applications to Economics
Abstract: In this paper, we present an introduction to nonstandard analysis and survey its applications in
mathematical economics. Nonstandard analysis is a mathematical technique which has been widely used in
diverse areas in pure and applied mathematics, including probability theory, mathematical physics, and
functional analysis. Our primary goal is to provide a careful development of nonstandard methodology in
sufficient detail to allow the reader to use it in diverse areas in mathematical economics. This requires a careful
study of the nonstandard treatment of real analysis, measure theory, topological spaces, and so on. In order to
accommodate this extended treatment of methodology, the survey of work to date using nonstandard methods in
mathematical economics will be relatively brief; however, an extensive set of references will be provided. This
paper is a condensation of Anderson (1990); further details may be found there.
