Urban and regional dynamics - 3: 'DNA' and 'genes' as a basis for constructing a typology of areas

This is the third paper in a series on urban and regional dynamics. They are intended to lay the basis for a future research programme. In the first paper, Wilson (2008-A), a core model was presented which can be used to demonstrate the consequences of interdependencies in the evolution of urban and regional systems.

In the second, Wilson (2008-B), an hierarchical model was developed. In this paper, the argument is taken a stage further and the mechanisms or urban system evolution are further exposed. The exposition in this paper is based on the model presented in the first paper and to avoid repetition, the detail of that is not repeated here.
