Cellular Automata Modeling for Urban and Spatial Systems

Cities and Complexity


Cities and complexity: understanding cities with cellular automata, agent-based models, and fractals by M Batty; MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2005, 565 pages, ISBN 0 262 025833

Cities and Complexity is a great book that presents a part of the work of Michael Batty in urban modeling. It provides a deep introduction on the topic and then presents the theory and the development of many types of models and their applications. CA is one of the central topics of the book as their key concepts are discussed in many different aspects throughout the book . You can find a review published in EPB by David O’Sullivan here.
