Title  Complexity in Financial Markets : Modeling Psychological Behavior in AgentBased Models and Order Book Models 
Author(s)  Cristelli, Matthieu 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2014. 
Description  XIX, 216 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Tools and methods from complex systems science can have a considerable impact on the way in which the quantitative assessment of economic and financial issues is approached, as discussed in this thesis. First????it is shown??that the selforganization of financial markets is a crucial factor in the understanding of their dynamics. In fact, using an agentbased approach, it is argued that financial markets??? stylized facts appear only in the selforganized state. Secondly, the thesis points out the potential of socalled big data science for financial market modeling, investigating how webdriven data can??yield a picture of??market activities:?? it has been found that web query volumes anticipate trade volumes. As a third achievement, the metrics developed here??for country competitiveness and product complexity is groundbreaking in??comparison to mainstream theories of economic growth and technological development. A key element in assessing the intangible variables determining the success of countries in the present globalized economy is represented by the diversification of the productive basket of countries. The comparison between the level of complexity of a country's productive system?? and economic indicators such as the GDP per capita discloses its hidden growth potential

Title  Measurement and Probability : A Probabilistic Theory of Measurement with Applications 
Author(s)  Rossi, Giovanni Battista 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2014. 
Description  XIII, 286 p. 82 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Measurement plays a fundamental role both in physical and behavioral sciences, as well as in engineering and technology: it is the link between abstract models and empirical reality and is a privileged method of gathering information from the real world. Is it possible to develop a single theory of measurement for the various domains of science and technology in which measurement is involved? This book takes the challenge by addressing the following main issues: What is the meaning of measurement? How do we measure? What can be measured? A theoretical framework that could truly be shared by scientists in different fields, ranging from physics and engineering to psychology is developed. The future in fact will require greater collaboration between science and technology and between different sciences. Measurement, which played a key role in the birth of modern science, can act as an essential interdisciplinary tool and language for this new scenario. A sound theoretical basis for addressing key problems in measurement is provided. These include perceptual measurement, the evaluation of uncertainty, the evaluation of intercomparisons, the analysis of risks in decisionmaking and the characterization of dynamical measurement. Currently, increasing attention is paid to these issues due to their scientific, technical, economic and social impact. The book proposes a unified probabilistic approach to them which may allow more rational and effective solutions to be reached. Great care was taken to make the text as accessible as possible in several ways. Firstly, by giving preference to as interdisciplinary a terminology as possible; secondly, by carefully defining and discussing all key terms. This ensures that a wide readership, including people from different mathematical backgrounds and different understandings of measurement can all benefit from this work. Concerning mathematics, all the main results are preceded by intuitive discussions and illustrated by simple examples. Moreover, precise proofs are always included in order to enable the more demanding readers to make conscious and creative use of these ideas, and also to develop new ones. The book demonstrates that measurement, which is commonly understood to be a merely experimental matter, poses theoretical questions which are no less challenging than those arising in other, apparently more theoretical, disciplines

Title  Econophysics and Data Driven Modelling of Market Dynamics 
Author(s)  Frederic Abergel (ed.);Hideaki Aoyama (ed.);Bikas K. Chakrabarti (ed.);Anirban Chakraborti (ed.);Ghosh, Asim 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2015. 
Description  XIII, 353 p. 116 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the works and research findings of physicists, economists, mathematicians, statisticians, and financial engineers who have undertaken datadriven modelling of market dynamics and other empirical studies in the field of Econophysics. During recent decades, the financial market landscape has changed dramatically with the deregulation of markets and the growing complexity of products. The everincreasing speed and decreasing costs of computational power and networks have led to the emergence of huge databases. The availability of these data should permit the development of models that are better founded empirically, and econophysicists have accordingly been advocating that one should rely primarily on the empirical observations in order to construct models and validate them. The recent turmoil in financial markets and the 2008 crash appear to offer a strong rationale for new models and approaches. The Econophysics community accordingly has an important future role to play in market modelling. The EconophysKolkata VIII conference proceedings are devoted to the presentation of many such modelling efforts and address recent developments. A number of leading researchers from across the globe report on their recent work, comment on the latest issues, and review the contemporary literature

Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2014. 
Description  XII, 204 p. 146 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This wideranging and accessible book serves as a fascinating guide to the strategies and concepts that help us understand the boundaries between physics, on the one hand, and sociology, economics, and biology on the other. From cooperation and criticality to flock dynamics and fractals, the author addresses many of the topics belonging to the broad theme of complexity. He chooses excellent examples (requiring no prior mathematical knowledge) to illuminate these ideas and their implications. The lively style and clear description of the relevant models will appeal both to novices and those with an existing knowledge of the field

Title  Simulating Social Complexity : A Handbook 
Author(s)  Edmonds, Bruce;Meyer, Ruth 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013. 
Description  VII, 754 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Social systems are among the most complex known. This poses particular problems for those who wish to understand them. The complexity often makes analytic approaches infeasible and natural language approaches inadequate for relating intricate cause and effect. However, individual and agentbased computational approaches hold out the possibility of new and deeper understanding of such systems. ??Simulating Social Complexity examines all aspects of using agent or individualbased simulation. This approach represents systems as individual elements having each their own set of differing states and internal processes. The interactions between elements in the simulation represent interactions in the target systems. What makes these elements "social" is that they are usefully interpretable as interacting elements of an observed society. In this, the focus is on human society, but can be extended to include social animals or artificial agents where such work enhances our understanding of human society. ??The phenomena of interest then result (emerge) from the dynamics of the interaction of social actors in an essential way and are usually not easily simplifiable by, for example, considering only representative actors. ??The introduction of accessible agentbased modelling allows the representation of social complexity in a more natural and direct manner than previous techniques. In particular, it is no longer necessary to distort a model with the introduction of overly strong assumptions simply in order to obtain analytic tractability. This makes agentbased modelling relatively accessible to a range of scientists. The outcomes of such models can be displayed and animated in ways that also make them more interpretable by experts and stakeholders. ??This handbook is intended to help in the process of maturation of this new field. It brings together, through the collaborative effort of many leading researchers, summaries of the best thinking and practice in this area and constitutes a reference point for standards against which future methodological advances are judged. ??This book will help those entering into the field to avoid "reinventing the wheel" each time, but it will also help those already in the field by providing accessible overviews of current thought. The material is divided into four sections: Introductory, Methodology, Mechanisms, and Applications. Each chapter starts with a very brief section called ???Why read this chapter???? followed by an abstract, which summarizes the content of the chapter. Each chapter also ends with a section of ???Further Reading??? briefly describing three to eight items that a newcomer might read next. ??

Title  Quantitative Sociodynamics : Stochastic Methods and Models of Social Interaction Processes 
Author(s)  Helbing, D 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1995. 
Description  XIX, 339 p. 79 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Quantitative Sociodynamics presents a general strategy for interdisciplinary model building and its application to a quantitative description of behavioural changes based on social interaction processes. Originally, the crucial methods for the modeling of complex systems (stochastic methods and nonlinear dynamics) were developed in physics but they have very often proved their explanatory power in chemistry, biology, economics and the social sciences. Quantitative Sociodynamics provides a unified and comprehensive overview of the different stochastic methods, their interrelations and properties. In addition, it introduces the most important concepts from nonlinear dynamics (synergetics, chaos theory). The applicability of these fascinating concepts to social phenomena is carefully discussed. By incorporating decisiontheoretical approaches a very fundamental dynamic model is obtained which seems to open new perspectives in the social sciences. It includes many established models as special cases, e.g. the logistic equation, the gravity model, some diffusion models, the evolutionary game theory and the social field theory, but it also implies numerous new results. Examples concerning opinion formation, migration, social field theory; the selforganization of behavioural conventions as well as the behaviour of customers and voters are presented and illustrated by computer simulations. Quantitative Sociodynamics is relevant both for social scientists and natural scientists who are interested in the application of stochastic and synergetics concepts to interdisciplinary topics
