“The Department of Biological Physics, at Eötvös University in Budapest, Hungary, has clearly defined the goals of the project. Here is the last one. “As far as collective movements are common phenomena also in human behaviour (particular relevant in economics) we would like to explore the possibility of exporting the models and the techniques to economic collective choices. In this way we try to develop ways to investigate the reasons of social events, e.g. fashions, to understand socio-economic herding, and possibly to devise methods to tame dangerous excessive market fluctuations.”
