This book's authors are among the most respected, experienced, and accomplished innovators in land change simulation modeling. This book is essential reading for scholars of cellular automata and of other spatially explicit landscape models concerning complex systems. The book connects theory, with methodology, with planning.

?Robert Gilmore Pontius Jr, Professor of Geography, Clark University; coauthor of Advancing Land Change Modeling: Opportunities and Research Requirements

Twenty years ago White, Engelen, and Uljee established the field of cellular automata modeling of urban dynamics. Now these universally recognized leaders offer us a pathbreaking book on urban and regional modeling. Based on complexity paradigm, they develop an operational theory and demonstrate the strengths of their approach with exciting applications. Anyone who wants to obtain a conceptually refined and practically useful perspective on urban and regional planning and forecasting should read this brilliantly written book.

?Itzhak Benenson, Professor of Quantitative Geography, Tel-Aviv University

Complexity science reveals new limits to our knowledge and predictive powers. Modeling can allow us to explore possible futures with or without various actions, policies, and interventions. Complex systems models such as those presented in this book capture the collective effects of multiple interactions, allowing possible problems to be revealed in advance and avoided, and possible opportunities grasped. Such models are invaluable.

?Peter Allen, Emeritus Professor, Cranfield School of Management

At last a book that tells us how to build and apply cellular automata models of cities. It provides an important benchmark in our armory of tools that help us unravel the intricate nature of cities as systems. Essential reading for urbanists as well as planners and policy makers alike who are grappling with problems of urban growth and decline requiring powerful methods to inform their predictions.

?Michael Batty, University College London, author of The New Science of Cities
