The back cover of this volume claims that it is "the first book providing a panoramic view of these developments in the last one and half decades", referring to the recently developing transdisciplinary fields of econophysics and sociophysics . Given that as self-identified fields these have barely existed for over a decade, it may be arguably the first such edited volume to appear ever, although individuals have written on these areas previously, most notably individuals at the Brussels Free University ( Prigogine 1980 ) and at the Stuttgart Institute of Theoretical Physics ( Weidlich and Haag 1983 ). In both cases, ...

tries to figure out what works and what doesn’t in organization design, but along the way I wonder if Miller is just recapitulating a moral principle or two that we all ought to be feeling anyway. Working together is a public-goods problem: if all of us on the team work except for me, then I get the advantages of the team’s production without doing any of the work. But all of us on the team have the same incentives, so we all have an incentive to avoid doing work. But if we all avoid doing work, the team produces less than it could, and we all suffer. In the jargon, “everyone shirks” is a Pareto-inefficient market research, surveys and trends

Mantegna and Stanley, Introduction to Econophysics
In these strange days, it sometimes seems that every schoolchild knows the argument for the efficient market hypothesis, but here is the EMH one more time. Consider an equilibrium financial market, populated by rational agents. The price an agent will pay for a financial instrument is its net present value to him --- his estimate of future returns, discounted for time-preference and risk. Since the agents are rational, their estimates of future returns will accurately incorporate everything they know. Hence prices change only when tastes (for risk and for time) change, or when unpredictable information arrives. If a piece of ...

I am doing research for a book and I am also a mechanical engineer, so feel free to get technical with any answer you can provide. As I understand it, inside the nucleus of the atom, the protons and neutrons are each composed of some combination of three up/down quarks.  I'm curious about how to visually picture the fight that is going on between the electromagnetic repulsion of the protons vs. the strong attraction of the quarks. As I visualize it now, the quarks that compose each proton or neutron are melded together by a seemingly endless interchange of virtual gluons.  The protons as a whole, however, with ...
Economics for physicists | Ask MetaFilter
Can anyone recommend a book which explains the basics of economic theory in a way accessible to physicists/mathematicians? I have a background in physics, and would like to get a decent understanding of the basic mechanisms in economics, but it seems that most books on this subject argue in a very qualitative way, assuming that you already are comfortable with various facts about how the economic world works. I need something that builds the subject up from the ground up and explains it logically, preferably not a massive university textbook - more like a primer for the uninitiated. Anyone know of such a book? A book like Keynes ...
