The framework also assists in analyzing short-term mobility behaviors and long-term social and demographic evolution of the critical connection between population and infrastructure. These objectives are achieved by:
1) quantifying the interactions of different demographic groups with multiple infrastructures,
2) characterizing infrastructure facilities in several interconnected yet diverse systems,
3) modeling and optimizing the interdependent population-infrastructure system in a self-organized distributed system in which various infrastructure and population agents communicate on a cyber-platform, and
4) analyzing the important theoretical properties of this integrated model (e.g., system equilibrium and stability).
