The Science of Cities by Michael Batty


Last Friday Michael Batty was presenting in Melbourne, thanks to a joint event by AURIN and CSIRO. I read Batty's book on "New Science of Cities" about two years ago. My interest in cities and networks formed when I first read Batty's book and then Newman's book on networks. Since then, I've been trying to apply theories from network science to urban/transportation data with a touch of visualization to better understand cities, mostly focusing on Melbourne.
