The Society seeks to promote the use of nonlinear methods in economics and finance from both a theoretical and empirical perspective.
The Society's interest include but are not limited to the analysis of complex dynamics. While much of the original interest in nonlinear phenomena arose from the study of deterministic chaos, subsequent research has branched into an analysis of nonlinearities of all kinds. In the last decade, many have come to realize that nonlinearity is an inherent feature of economic and financial markets. We encourage work that will motivate these pervasive phenomena.
