Mathematics for Economics: A Statistical Mechanics Perspective

Pierluigi Contucci, Francesca Romiti
Will the noble (and sometimes snobbish) queen of sciences mathematics have a role in the future study of economics? Will the role it plays (if any) be as crucial as in the physical sciences? We argue that mathematics will very likely have a pivotal beneficial mutual exchange with economics, particularly through the study of statistical mechanical models of complex systems.
