1 Rosario N. Mantegna and H. Eugene Stanley
An Introduction to Econophysics: Correlations and Complexity in Finance
Cambridge University Press; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0521039878 / 9780521039871; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
This book concerns the use of concepts from statistical physics in the description of financial systems. The authors illustrate the scaling concepts used in probability theory, critical phenomena, and fully developed turbulent fluids. These concepts are then applied to financial time series. The authors also present a stochastic model that displays several of the statistical properties observed in empirical data. Statistical physics concepts such as stochastic dynamics, short- and long-range correlations, self-similarity and scaling permit an understanding of the global behaviour of economic systems without first having to work out a detailed microscopic description of the system. Physicists will find the application of statistical physics concepts to economic systems interesting. Economists and workers in the financial world will find useful the presentation of empirical analysis methods and well-formulated theoretical tools that might help describe systems composed of a huge number of interacting subsystems. This book is on an important field of econophysics, which applies ideas from statistical physics to economics and finance Gene Stanley is a distinguished and very well-known physicist and author This work was highlighted in a page 1 article in the Wall Street Journal on November 6, 1998 Contents Preface; 1.
