Mathematical Economics is not a distinct branch of economics in the sense that public finance or international trade is. Rather, it is an approach to economic analysis, in which the economist makes use of mathematical theorems to aid in reasoning. It refers to the application of mathematics to the purely theoretical aspects of economic analysis.
As far as the specific subject matter of analysis goes, it can be micro- or macroeconomic theory, public finance, urban economics, or what not.
Conventionally, mathematical economics is reserved to describe cases employing mathematical techniques beyond simple geometry, such as matrix algebra, differential and integral calculus, differential and difference equations, etc.
