And the connection goes deeper. Physics is actually about developing general descriptions - mathematical models - of the world around us. The models may describe different types of complexity, such as the movement of molecules in a gas or the dynamics of stars in a galaxy. It turns out that similar models can just as well be applied to analogous complex behaviour in the financial ...
Professor Akash Bandyopadhyay recounts his career trajectory from theoretical physics to Wall Street to the faculty of the graduate school of business at Chicago in this interview . One small comment: Bandyopadhyay says below that banks hire the very best PhDs from theoretical physics. I think he meant to say that, generally, they hire the very best among those who don't find jobs in physics. Unfortunately, few are able to find permanent positions in the field.
