Urban cities have become increasingly complex arising from the rich interplay between structures and socio-economic factors. Given this complexity, a traditional reductionist approach may prove to be insufficient to analyse and model such systems whose emergent behaviour cannot be described by a simple summation of its parts.
The Complex Systems Capability Group (CxSy) of the Institute of High Performance Computing aims to build complex systems capabilities to address these issues. The group looks to develop tools to understand, design, manage and evaluate various urban systems using Singapore as a use-case scenario.
