This edited collection, first published in , provides a comparative analysis of different approaches to urban modelling, and lays the foundations for the possibility of integration and a more unified field. The first part contextualises the development of the field of urban systems modelling, focusing on the variety of approaches and possible implications of this on the future of research and methodology.
Providing an overview to the field and research literature, the overarching argument is that there should be an integrated methodological approach to urban system modelling. Introduction C. Bertuglia and A. Wilson 2. An historical review of approaches to urban modelling C. Bertuglia, G.

I am looking for discussion of hierarchical relations, its concomitant, city competition, and especially to any reference to the alternative, city network, and its concomitant, city complementarity. Scattered amongst their dense text, I have identified six separate steps in their argument on inter-city relations. This first step is about clearing the decks; it dismisses traditional ideas of economics as being antithetical to the very existence of cities.
A new theoretical start is needed for understanding cities and their external relations in an urban economics. Two possible city developers are identified: a firm factory town or local government planned town. But this step is as unsuccessful as the previous one.
syoulidetero.gq The first agency produces an. The city system obtained here looks like a collection of isolated cities' p. To create trade an intervention is required to generate specialization; a city government has to be this economic agent p.
To overcome this problem Thunen is brought back into the argument despite being previously criticised at the most basic level:. The equilibrium of step three is undone when the population exceed a threshold. This provides an evolutionary mechanism to generate more cities:. When the population keeps rising, still more cities will appear, and so on.
The main result is that similar cities are created at more or less equal distances as the population increases continuously ' p. This is the crucial point:. In other words a city appears here as a complex system whose existence is the result of a self-organizing process' p. Not quite hexagons, but geographers will recognise this result whereby cities emerge to service a rural population. Now that central place theory has entered the argument it appears to be only natural that the next stage will be to create a city hierarchy.
The evolutionary approach is thus extended:. Thus, it would seem, that Christaller has finally made it into urban economic theory. But, intriguingly, this turns out not to be the case. Having introduced trade and specialization into the model, it is found that cities do more than service their hinterlands; crucially, they trade with each other. Thus it is found that results include.
Although not recognised as such, what these results produce is a network model of inter-city relations interwoven with the classic hierarchical model.
