Econophysics of Agent-Based Models

The primary goal of this book is to present the research findings and conclusions of physicists, economists, mathematicians and financial engineers working in the field of "Econophysics" who have undertaken agent-based modelling, comparison with empirical studies and related investigations. Most standard economic models assume the existence of the representative agent, who is "perfectly rational" and applies the utility maximization principle when taking action. One reason for this is the desire to keep models mathematically tractable: no tools are available to economists for solving non-linear models of heterogeneous adaptive agents without explicit optimization. In contrast, multi-agent models, which originated from statistical physics considerations, allow us to go beyond the prototype theories of traditional economics involving the representative agent. This book is based on the Econophys-Kolkata VII Workshop, at which many such modelling efforts were presented. In the book, leading researchers in their fields report on their latest work, consider recent developments and review the contemporary literature.

From the book reviews: "The book is loosely divided into three sections. ... At their best, econophysics papers provide new insights into social science problems and new modeling technologies. ... I do think that agent-based modelers, particularly those who deal with others in the natural sciences from time to time, may find it a useful update on where this field is and where it is going. It does have something to say to those of us in this community." (Blake LeBaron, Journal of Economic Literature, Vol. 52 (3), September, 2014)
