Deduction and Demonstration of an Urban Planning Model Based on “CAS” Theory
“The city can be regarded as a complex system based on CAS theory. The study has extracted five characteristic elements of CAS theory, i.e. concentration, identification, nonlinearity, stream and diversity, and concluded three parameters of “preference”(P), “input” (threshold) (I) and “total associated cost” (T) through analogical deduction, having constructed a self-adaptive urban planning model based on CAS theory and demonstrated issues on “scale and configuration” of a city.
