Ake E.Andersson has consistently been intellectually at the stream. He has chosen his personal music during the educational approach and has shaped a faculty of suggestion which has introduced him foreign attractiveness. The cornerstones of his clinical curiosity are welfare research, local fiscal dynamics and human capital thought. For his first-class achievements on dynamic research within the box of nearby economics and neighborhood making plans he obtained the japanese Honda Prize in 1995. This publication presents a pattern of the wide ranging learn of Ake E.Andersson. the following a few of his neighbors and associates have contributed to provide quite a few examples from the growing to be examine box "Knowledge and Networks in a Dynamic economic climate" during which he has been an excellent suggestion and during which he has contributed as a part of his prodigious output.

Example text

In section 4 I will argue that making decisions in human life can be directly related to pattern recognition. We will see that a number of phenomena that we encounter in pattern recognition are repeated in decision making. Such decision making may, of course, refer to decision making with respect to specific plans of settlements. As it will tum out, this kind of decision making described here is of a rather psychological nature. Then I wish to address the same problem by making rational decisions on account of optimization, for instance how buildings must be arranged in order to increase or maximize the efficiency of a settlement.

Imagine the situation in which the metabolic component of one of the cells in the network fails. If the repair system is to build this cell back into the network before the metabolic failure can be transmitted to other cells, it will be necessary for all the necessary inputs to the repair system to be available on a time scale much faster than the metabolic outputs are transmitted throughout the network. If not, 54 John L. Casti then the failure cannot be repaired before its effect is felt on other cells, thereby causing them to fail as well.

The degree to which this local failure can be isolated is directly related to how fast the corresponding "raw materials" can be made available to the relevant repair system. There are other sorts oftime-Iag effects of a metabolic type that also enter into networks, but I'll leave the interested reader to consult the discussion given in, for example, [4-5] for an account. Once we have made the passage from the consideration of a single cell to a network of such cells, a whole new vista of opportunity presents itself for the study of the collective properties of the network and the way in which the collective properties emerge from the behavior of the individual cells.
