Geoffrey West in his recent book Scale provides a description of cities as an “life form” that can be characterized by the same basic rules he, with others, have published to provide a theoretical basis for biology. Central to this endeavor is the study of networks. Since for the first time in history more of us live in cities than in a rural setting, new understandings of how cities “work” is of interest to all of us. Earl Lory will lead a discussion of the networks Professor West has developed and applied to cities.
