Development of an agent-based speculation game for higher reproducibility of financial stylized facts
Minority games with score-dependent and agent-dependent payoffs.
TLDR
It is observed that the standard deviation sigma2/N is significantly reduced, thus the efficiency of the system is distinctly improved, and a qualitative explanation for the long-range volatility correlations is given.
Minority games with finite score memory
We analyse grand canonical minority games with infinite and finite score memory and different updating timescales (from 'on-line' games to 'batch' games) with various complementary methods, both
The cavity method for minority games between arbitrageurs on financial markets
We use the cavity method from statistical physics for analyzing the transient and stationary dynamics of a minority game that is played by agents performing market arbitrage. On the level of linear
Heterogeneous Round-Trip Trading and the Emergence of Volatility Clustering in Speculation Game
This study is a detailed analysis of Speculation Game, a simple agent-based model of financial markets, in which the round-trip trading and the dynamic wealth evolution with variable trading volumes
Heterogeneous wealth distribution, round-trip trading and the emergence of volatility clustering in Speculation Game
This study is a detailed analysis of Speculation Game, a minimal agent-based model of financial markets, in which the round-trip trading and the dynamic wealth evolution with variable trading volumes
Phenomenology of Minority Games in Efficient Regime
TLDR
Using properties of the utility and analysing the game in terms of de Bruijn graphs, this work can explain all interesting observable features of the aggregated demand: appearance of strong fluctuations, their periodicity and existence of prefered levels.

TLDR
From the numerical results, it is concluded that the wealth inequality in the MG is very severe near the point of maximum cooperation among players, where the diversity of the strategy space is approximately equal to the number of strategies at play.

From Minority Games to real markets
We address the question of market efficiency using the Minority Game (MG) model. First we show that removing unrealistic features of the MG leads to models which reproduce a scaling behaviour close

We show that the minority game, a model of interacting heterogeneous agents, can be described as a spin system and displays a phase transition between a symmetric phase and a symmetry broken phase
HERD BEHAVIOR AND AGGREGATE FLUCTUATIONS IN FINANCIAL MARKETS
We present a simple model of a stock market where a random communication structure between agents generically gives rise to heavy tails in the distribution of stock price variations in the form of an
Statistical mechanics of systems with heterogeneous agents: minority games
TLDR
It is shown that the stationary state of the system is described by the ground state of a disordered spin model which is exactly solvable within the simple replica symmetric ansatz.

TLDR
This model studies the dynamics of the batch minority game, with random external information, using generating functional techniques introduced by De Dominicis, and finds asymptotic solutions with diverging volatility sigma=O(alpha(-1/2)); the former are shown to emerge only if the agents' initial strategy valuations are below a specific critical value.
