Update on the Blank Swan

November 4, 2010

A quick update to highlight the paper Elie Ayache just kindly pointed to in comments to a recent plug: “The End of Probability”. Thanks Elie!

BTW: More philosophy for “after the market” (in French) at Elie Ayache’s Après le marché.

The Blank Swan

October 12, 2010

Of possible interest to blog readers:

Quant Elie Ayache uses philosopher Quentin Meillassoux (his book After Finitude) in a talk about his recent book, The Blank Swan: The End of Probability. Clips of the talk (quite intriguing) available here, here and here. More on Ayache at ITO 33 and at Willmott.
