Why do ghettos form in a tolerant society? Schelling's model and the introduction of cellular automata

  • 1. University of Warsaw


In this module we would like to concentrate on spatial segregation and a question about an inevitability of ghettoisation. It will be a pretext for introducing spatial models, with special emphasis on cellular automata. We will start from Schelling’s segregation model as a very intuitive example of spatial multiagent model. It will help learners get some intuitive grasp of such models and basic understanding of modelling spatial processes. It will also show what are the basic characteristics of such models.
