This introduction summarises the main contributions of 18 chapters in this book, in addition to two articles (Part I) reflecting Carl’s view on a broad range of research-related issues originally published in Italian. The contributed chapters cover the latest developments in Nonlinear Economic Dynamics (Part II), Financial Market Modelling (Part III) and Quantitative Finance (Part IV), the three most active research areas Carl has been involved in.
