The Story of Econophysics

This book will appeal to the lay-reader with an interest in the history of what is today termed ‘Econophysics’, looking at various works throughout the ages that have led to the emergence of this field. It begins with a discussion of the philosophers and scientists who have contributed to this discipline, before moving on to considering the contributions of different institutions, books, journals and conferences in nurturing the subject.

“Dr Kishore Chandra Dash, the author of the present book has done painstaking work by writing this excellent book. The book is written in simple words, and does not need much of mathematics and physics to understand. From this point of view, the author has achieved his goal, as promised in the ‘Preface’. The Story of Econophysics will be useful not only for general readers who are interested in social, economic, political issues, but also for young research scholars interested in econophysics because the book gives cue for further research in this area.”
