Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For many years, methods of mathematical and computational physics have been applied to financial markets, e.g., to understand and predict derivatives (options, etc.), insights into trading algorithms, dynamics of economies, etc. This issue will highlight the various ways physics has influenced financial markets, as well as various ways future physics likely may influence future financial markets (quantum computation, markets based on quantum variables, etc.). Please send your Abstract to Lester Ingber <ingber@alumni.caltech.edu>

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
