Dear Prof. Forte,
I have used Bounded Rationality to explain Incomplete Markets right with my PhD thesis at NYU and in a number of publications in Asset Management, Quantitative Finance & Mathematical Finance and in also some Genetic Algorithmic Physics models. Now if Bounded Rationality is the effect of Complexity of the Environment then I have derived the Information and Energy Meanfields as in Quantum Physics and published in to class Physics journals. So although not many I do have top class publications in both Behavioral Finance & Mathematical Finance & Physics. But of course due regards to Prof. Thaler and others.SKM PhD QC FEPS(D)
