Analysis of urban complex networks
(Bielefeld Bonn Stochastic Research Center (BiBoS), University of Bielefeld, Postfach 100131, D-33501, Bielefeld, Germany)
We analyze the dual graph representation of urban textures by the methods of complex network theory and spectral graph theory. We present the empirical diagrams of distributions of the nearest and far-away neighbors in the several European compact urban patterns and the spectra of normalized Laplace operator defined on their dual graphs.
