Complexity, Risk and Financial Markets by Edgar E. Peters

Book Description

A groundbreaking look at complexity theory and its implications in the world of finance Complexity theory tells us that processes with a large number of seemingly independent agents-such as free markets-can spontaneously organize themselves into a coherent system. In this fascinating book, Edgar Peters brings together scientific theory, the artistic process, and economics to show how the randomness and uncertainty of complexity theory can be applied to financial markets. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this is a thoughtful, conceptual look at the way free markets are, by their nature, continually evolving complex systems. Expanding on previous explorations of chaos theory, Peters draws on real-life examples ranging from the Asian crisis to America's love of conspiracy to show that complexity and randomness are necessary for the free markets to operate in a competitive manner.

Books By Author Edgar E. Peters

Patterns in the Dark by Edgar E. Peters Patterns in the Dark, Hardback (May 1999)

"A fascinating account of one of today's great paradoxes: The irreducible uncertainty that lies at the heart of social and economic order. A perfectly efficient market could not possibly work. Uncertainty reduces risk. Ed Peters takes our most cherished beliefs, tuns them upside down, and convinces us that they're much better that way.

Chaos and Order in the Capital Markets by Edgar E. Peters Chaos and Order in the Capital Markets, Hardback (September 1996)

This edition includes developments in chaos theory, with new chapters that tie in with innovations such as fuzzy logic, neural nets and artificial intelligence as they relate to finance.

Fractal Market Analysis by Edgar E. Peters Fractal Market Analysis, Hardback (March 1994)

A leading pioneer in the field offers practical applications of this innovative science. Peters describes complex concepts in an easy--to--follow manner for the non--mathematician. He uses fractals, rescaled range analysis and nonlinear dynamical models to explain behavior and understand price movements.
