QN ), which would allow one to determine the stationary state properties via an analysis of the minima of H(q). This is mathematically equivalent to the ground state analysis of an equilibrium statistical mechanical system, and hence allows one to use equilibrium statistical mechanical techniques after all. Although in order to apply this idea it was initially found necessary to neglect all fluctuations in MG, including those induced by the random histories, the resulting theory proved remarkably successful.

3 Overview of MG versions to be analyzed We are now in a position to state explicitly which MG models will be studied in the rest of this book, and how they are related. They will increase steadily in complexity, 34 Preparing the stage for statistical mechanics reflecting our increasing confidence and ambition as we go along, dealing in stages with the three technical obstacles that we identified earlier: the disorder (the randomly drawn strategies), the non-equilibrium nature of the dynamics (no detailed balance in the stationary state), and the non-Markovian nature of the process (via the market history).

22), and subsequently analyze the behaviour of this extremum for n → 0: f = − lim n→0 1 ˆ ]. 23) looks very simple, the continuation of a saddle-point which is an n × n matrix to values where n < 1 (which we are here asked to carry out) is in fact highly non-trivial, and has given rise to an enormous body of litera9 It is appropriate at this stage to make a few clarifying notes on technicalities. Firstly, we have arrived at the present stage of our calculation upon choosing a specific scaling with N of the dummy integration variables {xµ α} and {ˆ qαβ }.
