Economic application of nonlinear dynamics, microscopic agent-based modelling, and the use of artificial intelligence techniques as learning devices of boundedly rational actors are among the most exciting interdisciplinary ventures of economic theory over the past decade. This volume provides us with a most fascinating series of examples on "complexity in action" exemplifying the scope and explanatory power of these innovative approaches.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"On May 29th – 31st, 2003, the annual Workshop on Economics with Heterogeneous Interacting Agents, was held in Kiel, Germany. The book under review collects selected papers presented at this workshop. Within five chapters a wide range of various research activities are covered. … The book under review provides a comprehensive collection of articles on nonlinear dynamics. Advanced researchers will find up to date studies especially on financial econometrics. Many presented concepts of interaction and learning may be applied to other social sciences as well." (Karsten Webel, Statistical Papers, Vol. 46 (4), 2005)
