Specification of the world city network

Auteur :
TAYLOR, P.J.

Description :
In this paper, the world city network is identified as an unusual form of network with three levels of structure : cities as the nodes, the world economy as the supranodal network level, and advanced producer service firms operating through cities who are the prime actors in world city network formation. This process is formally specified in terms of four international relational matrices. Through this specification it becomes possible to apply standard techniques of network analysis to world cities for the first time.
