multiple-nuclei theory

A theory of urban growth, developed by Chauncy Harris and Edward Ullman in 1945, as a synthesis of the concentric zone and sector theories; holds that an urban area develops around several distinct centers of development or nuclei, the number of which increases as the urban area grows.
