Synopsis: One of the newest and most controversial approaches to financial pricing. In Physics of Finance the author applies the methods of theoretical physics to financial economics to develop an altogether original method for pricing financial assets that steps outside the equilibrium paradigm in finance.
In Physics of Finance, basic assumptions underlying equilibrium pricing are re-examined, the risk factors hidden in the implications of equilibrium theory and the potential profit in unstable markets are discussed and gauge modelling is introduced.

From the Back Cover: In Physics of Finance Kirill Ilinski offers the first insight in book form into what could become a totally new approach to pricing financial assets.

Equilibrium asset pricing is a cornerstone of contemporary finance and is widely used for a variety of purposes, from asset allocation to risk management. However, recent events, such as the collapse of Long Term Capital Management has prompted the need to re-examine the basic assumptions underlying equilibrium pricing. In response, and based on several year's research and work that applies the methods of theoretical physics to financial economics, the author has developed an important new approach that steps outside the equilibrium paradigm in finance.

In Physics of Finance:
* Basic assumptions underlying equilibrium pricing are re-examined
* The risk factors hidden in the implications of equilibrium theory and the potential profit in unstable markets are discussed at length
* Gauge modelling, an important new approach to the problem of tackling non-equilibrium pricing, is introduced
Physics of Finance has the potential to set off a new wave of thinking in financial circles. Written by a respected physicist and endorsed by highly regarded financial academics, this book will certainly generate heated debate and keen controversy in the financial community, both in academic and professional circles. Proving invaluable traders and financial engineers. Physics of Finance could be the first major step in a new journey in finance.

"The author applies field theory to non-equilibrium market dynamics thus opening an entirely new view on the subject. The result is a highly entertaining read packed with novel ideas. It will be a constant source of inspiration for both theoretical physicists and financial analysts for years to come"
Oliver Brockhaus, Head of Equity Derivatives Research, Chase

"A fascinating book and an excellent read. Refreshingly different from the thousands of nondescript books on quantitative finance."
Paul Wilmott
