Lead instructor:


10.3 Scaling in Cities » Introduction

Urban scaling is a very new topic that has received considerable attention recently in the field of complexity and beyond.  For this subunit, we are bringing you a 2014 Ted talk by Geoffrey West on scaling in cities.  We have also posted two papers from West's research group on the Supplementary Materials page.  This subunit is followed by an interview with the leader of this group, Professor Luis Bettencourt of the Santa Fe Institute. 

 

Enjoy!
