Summary
"Together with Richard L. Hudson, Benoit Mandelbrot turns a fractal eye to the behavior of financial markets and overturns the "random walk" theory that is the underpinning of all contemporary financial analysis. Markets, we learn, are far riskier than we have wanted to believe." "The ability to simplify the complex has made Mandelbrot one of the century's most influential mathematicians. With his fractal models, the (mis)behavior of the world's markets - from the gyrations of IMB's stock price and the Dow, to cotton trading, and the dollar-Euro exchange rate - can be understood in more accurate terms than the tired theories of yesteryear." "The (Mis)Behavior of Markets is a reevaluation of the standard tools and models of modern financial theory. Mandelbrot's fresh insights explode the false assumptions that have caused millions of investors, traders, and managers to underestimate the real risk, of the market."--Jacket
