About this book

Over the last two decades there has been a great deal of research into nonlinear dynamic models in economics, finance and the social sciences. This book contains twenty papers that range over very recent applications in these areas. Topics covered include structural change and economic growth, disequilibrium dynamics and economic policy as well as models with boundedly rational agents. The book illustrates some of the most recent research tools in this area and will be of interest to economists working in economic dynamics and to mathematicians interested in seeing ideas from nonlinear dynamics and complexity theory applied to the economic sciences.

Reviews

From the reviews: “Covering a wide range of economic applications, the book is especially useful as a source of inspiration for new ideas and research themes, as well as a repository of methodological references on the analysis of different kinds of dynamical systems … . the book is specially interesting for researchers in economics and in the social sciences who want to approach and explore the field of applications of non linear dynamics, who are looking for ideas to develop new papers in this field … .” (Segismundo S. Izquierdo, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Vol. 13 (3), 2010)
