By Stefano Zambelli, Donald A.R. George

The "great crash of 2008" and its linked banking predicament have printed the restrictions of mainstream economics. whereas exposing the expanding irrelevance of the sector, they've got pressured a few economists to re–examine their self-discipline. The monetary meltdown additionally confirmed how conventional linear or linearised versions with well–behaved additive stochastic disturbances, in line with orthodox "microeconomic foundations", should not sufficient to house the complexities of today′s international. Nonlinearity, Complexity and Randomness in Economics provides a number of innovative papers by means of prime economists, scientists, and philosophers.

Topics explored comprise nonlinear macroeconomic modelling, agent–based modelling, information–theoretic modelling of monetary markets, bounded rationality, and emergent complexity. using an interdisciplinary technique, Nonlinearity, Complexity and Randomness in Economics unearths how real highbrow rigour in economics calls for a foundation in algorithmic, computable mathematical foundations.
