Discussions and Comments in Econophys Kolkata IV
Abhirup Sarkar and Sitabhra Sinha discusses the historic relationship between the disciplines of Economics and Physics in their articles. They focus their discussions on any further avenues through which physics can shed any light on Economics. Bikas K. Chakrabarti proposes a modified version of the Fisher equation and conjectures how the recent economic meltdown could be accommodated in this modified framework. A.M. Tishin and V. I. Zverev outlines a quantum theoretic model of economics. An appendix is attached with the article containing a criticism of that article from the participants of Econophys-Kolkata IV.
