The Complex Networks of Economic Interactions Essays in Agent-Based Economics and Econophysics

Understanding the mechanism of a socio-economic system requires more than an understanding of the individuals that comprise the system. It also requires understanding how individuals interact with each other, and how the agg- gated outcome can be more than the sum of individual behaviors. This book...
