Recently, I’ve been searching my own website looking for notes of things I wrote ages ago. This is proof of three things: one, I’m an idiot, two, my website is actually more useful to me as an archive than you, the casual reader, and three, I spend waaay too much time on the net. So, robbing a great idea from Cosma Shalizi , I’m sticking my notes to myself on the web and archiving them in a new page, called Notes to Self . Here we go. Econophysics is the application of the modeling methodologies used in physics to the study of economic processes. Because physicists have highly developed data modeling skills, ...

A Physicist Finds the Invisible Hand Ain't There
Standard texts and research in economics and finance ignore the absence of evidence from the analysis of real, unmassaged market data to support the notion of Adam Smith's stabilizing Invisible Hand . In stark contrast, this text introduces a new empirically-based model of financial market dynamics that explains the volatility of prices options correctly and clarifies the instability of financial markets. The emphasis is on understanding how real markets behave, not how they hypothetically 'should' behave .” Comment Professor McCauley is Professor of Physics at the University of Houston . Modern economists like ... market research, surveys and trends

Econophysics is an interdisciplinary research field, applying theories and methods originally developed by physicists in order to solve problems in economics, usually those including uncertainty or stochastic elements and nonlinear dynamics [1,2]. Its application to the study of financial markets has also been termed statistical finance referring to its roots in statistical physics [3]. A financial market is a mechanism that allows people to easily buy and sell (trade) financial securities (such as stocks and bonds), commodities (such as precious metals or agricultural goods), and other fungible items of value at low transaction ... market research, surveys and trends

I will try to answer any question in physics, but I do not provide homework solutions or project ideas. I have some teaching experience at university level but I am also skilled at explaining things in simple terms. My specialty areas are granular materials, computational physics, particle physics, quantum physics, econophysics and general physics. Questions in GERMAN are welcome, too. Experience I have graduated in physics, specialized in theoretical particle physics and quantum field theory, worked in the area of econophysics and am currently working on my PhD in granular materials and computational physics. I have some ...
