## Summary

This paper studies the concept of innovation diffusion and how this could be seen as a way cities evolve.

Modeling this enables finding that global integration of cities (fully connected city graph on a territory) is not optimal for efficiently diffusing innovation that can spontaneously appear in any city.

I am interested in taking an ALife inspired approach to studying cities, as it can show cities as they could be.
