ABSTRACT
Extending finance theories using agent-based computational methods serves two purposes. First, it contributes to solving the intractability problem in behavioral-finance research. Second, it enlarges the agent-based method's application domain. The authors describe their research to extend behavioral finance using agent-based computing, then investigate some key issues in designing artificial stock markets. As their experiments show, agent-based modeling makes a meaningful contribution in extending financial economic theories. This article is part of a special issue on social computing.
