||Laboratory of Advanced Research B704
|Category||MPPS:Assets and Resources/Space and Environment (Electively Required)|
|Type||Lecture||Year||1st , 2nd|
|Class Hour||Friday 1,2|
|Goal||Aims of this class are to acquire fundamental knowledge of urban and regional analysis and to learn techniques for modeling location or density of urban and regional components.|
|Prerequisites||It is preferable for students to have mathematical basic knowledge such as fundamentals of linear algebra, infinitesimal calculus, and statistics.|
|Class Plan||This class introduces the method of active learning by group working. Based on the concept of flipped teaching, students are required to study necessary knowledge (examples are listed below) by using textbooks in advance. The class will proceed by finding out the mechanism or drawing the solution for the problem of familiar application examples. Each group will be organized by 2 to 3 students.
1. Urban modeling
2. Weber model
3. Two-dimensional location
4. Equity problem
5. Distance distribution
6. Elevator model
7. Population growth
8. Cohort analysis
9. Population distribution
10. Road patterns
