  • A note on the average density function in urban analysis
  • Distance from city centre ; Population density ; Spatial structure ; Urban area
  • It is argued that the density function, commonly used in the study of urban spatial structure, is more appropriately described as the ‘marginal density function’. From such a marginal density function, it is possible to derive two types of average
  • of the urban context. The two types of average density function are examined for different underlying forms of the marginal density function. Of the two types, the second has a greater applicability than the first in the analysis of urban spatial structure.
  • density function, each being concerned with a particular aspect of the spatial structure of population. The first type is consistent with the standard approach to the ‘average’in economic analysis, while the second more completely takes account

  • This article analyses the theoretical principles in interurban simulation models. To this end, it compares models made of systems of differential equations multi-agent models designed to simulating the differentiated dynamics of urban entities over
  • the medium to long term from their functional economic specialization. It shows that the latter systems are providing interesting solutions for the modelling method, because of their greater ability to simulate the emergence of geographical macrostructures

  • This paper analyses the ordinary city trap though the lens of post-colonial urban studies. First, it explains that a few major cities have the necessary economic specialization and therefore extraordinary function of commanding and controlling
  • , it demonstrates that the charges against the world city and global city concepts as paradigmatic, peripheralizing, and normative are rebutted and argues for the necessity of a provincial and comparative approach to urban studies.

  • This paper analyzes the ability of the urban ecosystem in Guangzhou City to sustain development from the perspective of entropy. The research was carried out in 3 steps. First, an evaluation index system that considers the ability of the urban
