Tokyo | Bibliography | Ikuo Matsuba and co.
Under the book “Chaos, Solitons & Fractals,” Volume 16 Issue 1, this essay is published in 2003 by Ikuo Matsuba and Masanori Namatame in the Faculty of Engineering of Chiba University. The point of the entry is to show the geometric urban sprawl of Tokyo from 1960 to 1995. It studies the scaling properties in the settlement area and inhabitant population through scaling exponents. It takes on more objective, formal approach to examine the growth of Tokyo. It is evident that the sprawl is shifted from lower entropy into higher entropy. The eventual dilution of Tokyo shows the population shift from the center to suburbs. Other means, one powerful focus to multiple foci.
