Planning has seen many changes in its central concerns and approaches in response to the state of the world with which it has had to deal. It is already almost twenty-five years ago that the science of urban modelling entered the planning area. Time and innovation have inevitably brought about advances in the theory and practice of this science, the pertinence of which is clearly demonstrated by the fact that planners still often lack convincing answers to the problems confronting them. In an attempt to clarify and tackle these problems, the present volume analyzes the role, development and applications of models in urban systems.
