On Metropolis Growth

  title={On Metropolis Growth},
  author={Syed Amaar Ahmad},
  journal={arXiv: Physics and Society},
We consider the scaling laws, second-order statistics and entropy of the consumed energy of metropolis cities which are hybrid complex systems comprising social networks, engineering systems, agricultural output, economic activity and energy components. We abstract a city in terms of two fundamental variables; $s$ resource cells (of unit area) that represent energy-consuming geographic or spatial zones (e.g. land, housing or infrastructure etc.) and a population comprising $n$ mobile units that…

Multiscale Information Theory and the Marginal Utility of Information

A formalism for multiscale information theory is introduced, which allows information to be quantified using any function that satisfies two basic axioms, and discusses two quantitative indices that summarize system structure: an existing index, the complexity profile, and a newIndex, the marginal utility of information.

The capacity of wireless networks

When n identical randomly located nodes, each capable of transmitting at W bits per second and using a fixed range, form a wireless network, the throughput /spl lambda/(n) obtainable by each node for

An Introduction to Random Field Theory

Elements of Information Theory

The author examines the role of entropy, inequality, and randomness in the design of codes and the construction of codes in the rapidly changing environment.

Search for Artificial Stellar Sources of Infrared Radiation

It is proposed that a search for sources of infrared radiation should accompany the recently initiated search for interstellar radio communications.
