Synopses & Reviews
Little by little we are being provided with an arsenal of operative instruments of a non-numerical nature, in the shape of models and algorithms, capable of providing answers to the "aggressions" which our economics and management systems must withstand, coming from an environment full of turmoil. In the work which we are presenting, we dare to propose a set of elements from which we hope arise focuses capable of renewing those structures of economic thought which are upheld by the geometrical idea. The concepts of pretopology and topology, habitually marginalized in economics and management studies, have centred our interest in recent times.
In an economic environment full of turmoil, the more versatile our explanatory models the better. This volume widens our perspective on these matters with innovative research on the application of pretopology and topology to economics and management studies.
