The Econophysics and Time Series Analysis Group (ETSA) was established in 2007 at the Institute of Theoretical Physics of Wrocław University. Our scientific interests focus on application of physical methods in finance and in economy, as well as on numerical and analytical investigations of time series properties. Our research is strongly linked to new ideas that have recently appeared in statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics or physics of complex systems and which are based on new universal paradigms like scaling theory, detrended fluctuation analysis, correlation dimensions, multifractality, random matrix theory or active agents approach. These ideas are now widely used in econophysics, statistical physics, economy and finance over the world.
We established and conduct the econophysics (financial physics) B.Sc. course for physics students. Our students may get their master diploma also in economy (see courses for students).
