Modeling social phenomena in spatial context

Edited by: Andreas Koch, Peter Mandl

Human behavior and action is closely related to a corresponding social and spatial environment. The nature of relations in their structures, functions, and temporal domains is characterized by a duality of contexts, an interrelatedness of the individual and local with the social and global. Causes, influences, and effects are mutual - and this at different scales. This book presents approaches that deal with interactions within and between the social and spatial realm, focusing on human behavior, land use change, and energy and infrastructure issues from an agent-based perspective.
