Urban and regional dynamics - 1: a core model

It is generally recognised that there are important interdependencies that govern the development of urban and regional systems and that these can in principle be captured through the building of appropriate models.

In this paper, the task is addressed of specifying the simplest demonstration model that will capture the most important dependencies. In particular, this involves linking the well-known methods of spatial interaction and location modelling with input-output analysis. A model is developed and presented and its potential uses are explored.
