Econophysics and Financial Physics

econophysics and financial physics special research report Photo by
Risk control and derivative pricing have become of major concern to financial institutions, and there is a real need for adequate statistical tools to measure and anticipate the amplitude of the potential moves of the financial markets. Summarising recent theoretical developments in the field, this second edition has been substantially expanded. Additional chapters now cover stochastic processes, Monte-Carlo methods, Black-Scholes theory, the theory of the yield curve, and Minority Game. There are discussions on aspects of data analysis, financial products, non-linear correlations, and herding, feedback and agent based models. ...
An Open Letter to George Soros | Econophysics Forum
Many leading scientists from various scientific fields, including Nobel Prize winners, have recently expressed their dissatisfaction with the state of economic theory, and it is obvious that new approaches are needed to address the fundamental and practical challenges of our financial, economic and social system. The criticisms of the pillars of classical economics are substantial and suggest that markets are not efficient by nature, economics can be driven far from equilibrium (as bubbles and crashes illustrate), the system behavior is dominated by interactions between the market participants and stakeholders, and hard to regulate, market research, surveys and trends

The Back Page
Almost every physicist by now has heard of the fast-growing subdiscipline of “econophysics”, a field characterized by collaborations between physicists and economists and focused on asking if new insights or even laws could emerge if the concepts and approaches of statistical physics were brought to bear on questions that originate in economics. And almost everyone, physicist or nonphysicist, has by now heard that the economies of every country–large or small, Eastern or Western–are witnessing truly huge fluctuations. So it is natural to ask “ Does econophysics have anything to say about the current ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

herever there are two, there is fear, there is danger, there is conflict, there is strife. When it is all One, who is there to hate, who is there to struggle with? When it is all He, with whom can you fight? This explains the true nature of life; this explains the true nature of being. This is perfection, and this is God. As long as you see the many, you are under delusion. -- Swami Vivekananda Place and Date of Birth : Darjeeling, February 10, 1975 1.

Victor Yakovenko: Econophysics
In a closed economic system, money is conserved. Thus, by analogy with energy, the equilibrium probability distribution of money must follow the exponential Gibbs law characterized by an effective temperature equal to the average amount of money per economic agent. We demonstrate how the Gibbs distribution emerges in computer simulations of economic models. Then we consider a thermal machine, in which the difference of temperatures allows one to extract a monetary profit. We also discuss the role of debt, and models with broken time-reversal symmetry for which the Gibbs law does not hold. [1.2] "Evidence for the ...

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 ...
Is Atlas Shrugged meant to be Ironic? | Ask MetaFilter
My political views are liberterian with leanings towards mutualism. A friend recommended I read 'Atlas Shrugged' by the Queen of the liberterian movment Ayn Rand. However I found the book so laughable I couldn't finish it (first time ever not finishing a book). The main premise of the book seemed to be that the second law of thermodynamics had been broken and a man had invented a perpetual motion machine. I understand liberterians don't like the second law of thermodyanmics, because it means the statement of "all property is theft" by the anarchist Pierre-Joseph Proudhon is true. But to resort to the childish ...
