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: City-1 shows how combinations of local parameters can affect global outcomes, while City-2 and City-3 look at the effect of changing either intention or behaviour in order to avoid the ‘cognitive dissonance’ of a gap between the two; the results are examined in the context of actual changes in attitudes of Jewish inhabitants to having Arab neighbours.

City-5 shows that the FACS framework does not have to be based upon traditional cellular automata, but may use GIS as the locational input, thus creating a very similar idea to O’Sullivan’s graph cellular automata. Available for download now.

If the games really are chaotic, and self-organisation results 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.

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. His persistence also tends to grate with the reader, as the eulogy to self-organisation becomes repetitive and turgescent.
