Cities have been in continuous existence for over 10,000 years and rapid urbanization in the past few decades have increased the importance of cities. Cities act as hubs that multiplex financial, real-estate, cultural, political, and knowledge services, as well as critical infrastructure systems. This interest group seeks to apply mathematical models to better understand the science of cities, e.g., resilience, entropy, scaling law, community structure, and data-driven models of cities. The application areas include, but are not limited to: urban conflict, terrorism, and riot prediction, urban economic trade projections, and urban planning.
