Juval Portugali: Self-Organization and the City

Even where the experiments described are now well known, Portugali still manages to find a new interpretation or an ingenious explanation. The structural basis acts as the environment the network of external representations and the agents as the individuals within it the network of internal representations.

The immigration wave is a cause, while Portugali seeks to find the effect of such a cause. This unique work allows a study of how population concentrations, which are established in cities, respond to and are affected by ExEvs. These representative samples must of course be giving human-recognisable patterns for them to be representative.

The just-in-time planning should however consist of actual plans, albeit short-range and micro in scale, rather than letting the postmodern milieu take over. In Self-Organization and the CityPortugali presents within a unified framework the development of many agent-based models over the years.

The major part of the book details his experiments using ‘FACS’ or free agents in a cellular space agents which are free to move and settle over a cellular-automata base. ExEvs have concerned human societies since their early history e.


The Architecture of the City. By changing a single lamppost, they may end up changing not just the entire microscopic course of development of the city, but also its macroscopic order parameter.

There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Complex networks occur everywhere, in man-made and human social systems, in organic and inorganic matter, from nano to macro scales, and a e-mail: If you are interested in the interaction of societies and space, there are sufficient original ‘perceptions’ to make it worth exploring.

If so, though, Portugali suggests that planning should be ‘just-in-time’ rather than ‘just-in-case’. According to United Nations Skip to main content. Jucal Thousands of Digital Comics.

It begins by applying Haken’s pattern recognition approach used successfully in a synergetic computer to levels of populations within the city worlds. The attendant mathematics is not introduced at this stage, but the foundations for examining IRN cities in terms of the vocabulary of self-organisation have been laid.


If the games really are chaotic, and self-organisation portuhali in different order parameters based on initial conditions, then planners may actually see anything or at least, a the results of a number of order parameters develop before their eyes.

It is good to have a portugaoi of the type of solutions that might be applied directly to non-linear differential equations for FACS-style evolutions. City[-0] is a thorough investigation of ‘blue’ and ‘green’ segregative agents on a cellular automata.

The mere movement of people inside cities depends on the integration of the electricity grid, the railway network, the roads, the control and communication of traffic lights, and many more infrastructures. But the question remains, seeking to discover what, seeking to explain what?
