Anirban ChakrabortiIn hmolscience, Anirban Chakraborti (c.1972-) is an Indian physicist noted for []

In 2000, Chakraborti began to do work on the statistical mechanics of economics, Gibbs distribution money theories, and agent-based econophysics models. Chakraborti has the following description of himself posted on his Ecole Centrale Paris faculty page: [2]

“Econophysics studies consisting of various conceptual approaches of economic problems using the tools and methods of statistical physics. This has been a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field. I have been fortunate to become the first PhD in econophysics from India.”

Chakraborti is an associate of Indian physicist and the Indian school of econophysics, who seems to have been a student of Indian physicist Bikas Chakrabarti. [1]

Chakraborti completed his MS in 1998 at the University of Kolkata, India, and his PhD in 2003 at the Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India. Since 2005, he has been a physics lecturer at Banaras Hindu University, India, and also is a chair of quantitative finance at the Laboratory of Applied Mathematics and Systems, Ecole Centrale Paris, where he does research on econophysics and financial physics problems such as kinetic theory of gases based agent models, attempts at formulating a “microscopic” Pareto principle equation, Cont-Bouchard econophysics herding behavior models, and self-organized criticality, where among other things he claims to be applying statistical physics based thermodynamics to the social sciences.
