  • S. M. Guseyn-Zade (1977) presents a new model for the relation of rank and size of cities with noninteractions between the cities within a region. It is different from the Zipf formula. The purpose of this paper is to examine to what extent
  • this model fits the size distribution of cities in seven selected urban areas : Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Hakodate, Hachinohe and Morioka areas, excluding the top rank city in each area. The result shows S. M. Guseyn-Zade's model is appropriate for Tokyo
  • The changes of city size in new China.
