Kristian Behrens () and
Chapter Chapter 4 in Handbook of Regional and Urban Economics, 2015, vol. 5, pp 171-245 from Elsevier
This chapter surveys recent developments in agglomeration theory within a unifying framework. We highlight how locational fundamentals, agglomeration economies, the spatial sorting of heterogeneous agents, and selection effects affect the size, productivity, composition, and inequality of cities, as well as their size distribution in the urban system.
