On PDE Models for (some) Socio-Economic Problems:
Price Formation, Opinion Formation and Crowd Modeling

We present and analyse partial differential equation models in the socio-economic sciences:
1) a highly nonstandard free boundary problem in price formation
2) a Boltzmann equation for opinion formation in human societies with strong leaders
3) a continuity equation with an eikonal field equation coupling.
