Simulating Artificial Stock Markets with Efficiency

Part of the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 156)


Stock markets have been studied for years in economy and finance academic departments by relying on the idea of a general homo economicus that makes rational choices. Classical approaches use equational representation to enable a global markets characterization, but they fail to explain the link between individual behaviours and the global market dynamic and trends that emerge.
