About

Overview

The Computational Intelligence and its Applications Series publishes academic work based either on one of the computational intelligence techniques or on applications of these techniques to a field of human endeavor. The books may be single author monographs, multiple author editions, conference proceedings, handbooks, or edited volumes by leading researchers with chapters contributed by researchers in the field. Computational Economics is a part of this series. Computational Economics provides models of various economic and financial issues while using computational intelligence as a foundation. The scope of this volume comprises finance, economics, management, organizational theory and public policies. It explains the ongoing and novel research in this field, and displays the power of these computational methods in coping with difficult problems with methods from traditional perspectives. By encouraging the discussion of different views, this book serves as an introductory and inspiring volume that helps to flourish studies in computational economics.
