Nonlinear Dynamics and Economics presents some of the recent developments in nonlinear economic dynamics along with related research from associated fields, including mathematics, statistics, biology, and physics. Specific areas covered include instability in economic theory, nonlinearity in financial markets, tests for nonlinearity and chaos, frequency domain methods, nonlinear business cycles, and nonlinear prediction and forecasting. This volume comprises the tenth in the International Symposia in Economic Theory and Econometrics series under the general editorship of William Barnett.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'… this is an excellent collection of articles, and should be of great interest to both economic theorists and econometricians with an interest in non-linearity and chaos.' Robert Taylor, The Economic Journal
