Computer Simulations

Part of the Springer Tracts in Modern Physics book series (STMP, volume 184)


Computer simulations are powerful tools supporting economic theories by bringing precision and rigor into economic and socioeconomic theories [97, 264, 370, 424]. By utilizing the speed and power of modern computers, they allow us to examine the consequences of complex rules and to study the dynamics of large systems. This makes them an important tool for dealing with the complex structure of economic systems. From a physical point of view, computer simulations allow the introduction of several natural scientific concepts and methods into the theoretical framework of economics, finance, and social science.
