** Applications of Physics in Financial Analysis **
How do financial markets behave? Can we model them effectively? Fresh ideas
on the behaviour of markets and other phenomena in economics are currently
being drawn from the emerging subject of econophysics, based on the
techniques and concepts of statistical physics.
A landmark conference on this subject will take place in Dublin next
summer, 15-17 July 1999.
Confirmed speakers are renowned econophysicists from around the world
(professors Aurell, Dacorogna, Stanley, Zhang) and include Per Bak, who
formulated the theory of self-organized criticality.
The aim of the conference will be to provide an active forum for
cross-disciplinary interaction between economists, financial experts,
physicists, and mathematicians. The conference will focus on analyses
and models of financial markets by discussing topics such as market
fluctuations, option pricing, risk assessment, and other phenomena of
current interest in econophysics, finance, and mathematical and
