Cellular Automata and Fractal Urban Form: A Cellular Modelling Approach to the Evolution of Urban Land-Use Patterns
TLDR
Cellular automata belong to a family of discrete, connectionist techniques being used to investigate fundamental principles of dynamics, evolution, and self-organization. Expand

High-resolution integrated modelling of the spatial dynamics of urban and regional systems
Abstract An emerging branch of geocomputing involves the modelling of spatial processes. A variety of techniques are being used, the most important being traditional regionalized system dynamicsExpand

Epistemic Permissiveness
A rational person doesn't believe just anything. There are limits on what it is rational to believe. How wide are these limits? That's the main question that interests me here. But a secondaryExpand

Hierarchical fuzzy pattern matching for the regional comparison of land use maps
TLDR
The evaluation of the spatial similarities and land use change between two raster maps is traditionally based on pixel-by-pixel comparison techniques. Expand

Immigrant-trade links, transplanted home bias and network effects
Macro-level data for the US and 73 trading partners spanning the years 1980 to 2001 is used with a gravity specification to investigate the influence of immigration on bilateral trade. Prior researchExpand

The nuclear receptor co-repressor Nrip1 (RIP140) is essential for female fertility
Ovulatory dysfunction is the commonest cause of female infertility. Here we show that the co-repressor nuclear-receptor-interacting protein 1 (Nrip1; encoded by the gene Nrip1) is essential forExpand
