This article proposes a new method to analyze the spatial structure of urban systems using ideas from fractals. Regarding a system of cities as a set of “particles” distributed randomly on a triangular lattice, we construct a spatial correlation function of cities. Suppose that the spatial correlation follows the power law. It can be proved that the(More)
The difficulty to obtain a stable estimate of fractal dimension for stochastic fractal (e.g., urban form) is an unsolved issue in fractal analysis. The widely used box-counting method has three main issues: 1) ambiguities in setting up a proper box cover of the object of interest; 2) problems of limited data points for box sizes; 3) difficulty in(More)
