    The fundamental premise of the book is that cities and regions are complex, self-organizing, adaptive systems, and that they are therefore best understood by focussing on the processes by which they grow and structure themselves. The approach is thus algorithmic, using cellular automata (CA) based models, and emphasizes spatial structure as it appears in land use, population distribution, and. Regions and cities are adaptive, self-organizing systems of individuals whose interdependent actions create urban forms and produce spatial patterns. To explore how macro-patterns emerge from micro-behavior, we will discuss the bottom-up framework of agent-based modeling.

    Self-organizing systems are structures that process where some form of overall order or coordination arises out of the local interactions between smaller component parts of an initially disordered system. The process of self-organization can be spontaneous, and it is not necessarily controlled by any auxiliary agent outside of the system. The book is a must read for CEOs, technologists, mayors, urban leaders and anyone who wants to understand the simple laws that shape the complex, self-organizing world in which we live.” — Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class/5().

    Self-organizing systems have forever produced integrated outcomes in nature (ecosystems) and in human societies (language). Perhaps the earliest examples of self-organizing commercial systems are. Self-organizing systems exist in nature, including non-living as well as living world, they exist in man-made systems, but also in the world of abstract ideas, [12]. B.
