Summary note
  • Chaos & Nonlinear Dynamics in the Financial Markets explores both theory and empirical results related to nonlinear determinism in the dynamics of asset prices. It includes a wealth of material on the properties of chaotic processes relevant to markets, along with statistical and other tests which have been developed specifically to detect the presence of chaotic behavior.
  • This authoritative guide covers a comprehensive range of issues associated with chaos theory. It includes sections on theoretical foundations; evidence of chaos in the stock market, commodities markets, and money markets; and a section on advanced methodological issues. You'll also find included Chaos Explorer, a complimentary software package that graphically illustrates the chaotic processes that are referenced throughout the book.
