Infrastructures—from public transport systems to waste disposal—are an integral element of modern human society. This volume examines how infrastructures can adapt to rapidly changing environments through the use of game-simulation methods. This book investigates the use of those methods to help infrastructure research, and it also features essays on various other issues concerning infrastructures. It will be a valuable resource for researchers interested in game simulations and their practical value.
