The Econophysics Group is located at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) at ETH Zurich. Since more than a decade it was the home base for quantitative research and development of statistical, mathematical and numerical methods to analyze and answer problems in economics. Based on the academic groundwork of Tobias Setz and his former academic sponsor Prof. Diethelm Würtz, a series of publications from the Econophysics Group received extremely positive feedback from the financial industry and confirmed that there is a demand for ready-to- use, advanced risk management solutions and financial engineering components.
