COMPLEXITY IN SPATIAL DYNAMICS (COSMIC)
Cities are constellations of human processes that give rise to a multitude of dynamic behaviours manifesting themselves in rapid, abrupt, surprising, fast, slow and smooth changes across many temporal and spatial scales. The ‘driving forces’ (and their parameters) that guide such behaviour determine the relative stability, resilience, robustness or otherwise in city systems. These processes are poorly understood but critical to the implementation and success of policies that seek to manage and control interventions that are designed to improve the efficiency of the way cities work, their social equity, and their quality of life. Our broad aim in this project is to establish a core group in Europe which will synthesise and extend our understanding of these processes under the rubric of establishing wellfounded theories of urban dynamics.
