Economic Amplifier - A New Econophysics Model


  • Ion Spanulescu
  • Anca Gheorghiu


Most of the econometric and econophysics models have been borrowed from the statistical physics, and as a cosequence, a new interdisciplinary science called econophysics has emerged. In this paper we planned to extend the analogy between different economic processes or phenomena and processes and phenomena from different fields of physics, other than statistical physics. On the basis of the economic development process and amplification phenomenon analogy, a new econophysics model, named economic amplifier, on the electronic amplification principle from applied physics was proposed und largely analyzed.
