By Philippe Blanchard

Cities may be thought of to be one of the greatest and most complicated synthetic networks created via humans. as a result of the various and various human-driven actions, city community topology and dynamics can fluctuate relatively considerably from that of usual networks and so demand another approach to research.

The cause of the current monograph is to put down the theoretical foundations for learning the topology of compact city styles, utilizing tools from spectral graph conception and statistical physics. those equipment are validated as instruments to enquire the constitution of a few actual towns with largely differing houses: medieval German towns, the webs of urban canals in Amsterdam and Venice, and a latest city constitution reminiscent of present in new york.

Last yet now not least, the ebook concludes via offering a quick assessment of attainable purposes that would finally bring about an invaluable physique of data for architects, city planners and civil engineers.
