Plenary Lecture

Combining Genetic Algorithms with Software Agents as a Methodology to Simulate Financial Time Series

Professor Filippo Neri
Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
University of Naples Federico II

Abstract: In the talk we will describe how GAs can be combined with software agents in order to produce a powerful and versatile simulation method to model and study complex systems, like financial markets. Examples of challenging real financial time series will be given and we will show how to use the simulation methodology offered by a variety of software agents optimized by a GA in order to model their characteristics. Experiments will also be described and discussed.
