Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course is focused on the development of complex systems, especially cities and regions, the interconnection of natural and social characteristics of development. Attention is paid to dissipative and evolutionary structures, linear and nonlinear evolution, complexity, natural duality, the relationship of chance and decision making. All this as the basis and essence of management and planning in complex systems with practical examples at the level of cities and regions. An integral part of the whole course is the connection to the application of GI science tools in the evaluation of these complex systems, especially with the use of increasingly available new sources of spatial data in relation to the concept of Smart City / Smart Region.

Subject syllabus:

Learning outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to - perceive the complex interconnection of natural and social processes and phenomena and be able to describe them as best as possible using existing data sources and analytical methods - Understand the process of evolution, the layered characteristics of reality, evolutionary structures and nature duality - know the nature and possibilities of planning in relation to free will and management of settlements and regions - be able to use the possibilities of new data sources and GI science for effective management, planning and development - use their knowledge in research work - to place knowledge from other parts of the study into the context of (strategic) management and (spatial) planning of cities and regions Course contents 1. The city as a system, an organism 2. City among other cities 3. City and people 4. City and (spatial) data 5. Complex systems, their manifestations and reactions, life, systems intelligence, information theory, fractals and fractal dimensions, statistical asymmetry and developmental asymmetry 6. Dissipative structures, linear and nonlinear development, entropy, bifurcation, concentration and thinning, development, developmental structures, their age and stability, irreversibility and determinism 7. Decision making and decision making, decision making processes, length and decision modes 8. Decision-making guidelines, city administration, primary and secondary decision-making 9. Good big city management vs. small 10. Layering of self-government and city administration 11. Development plan, planning and strategy 12. Territorial development strategy as a missing element in Czech spatial planning 13. Crisis management and resilience of the city
