A chapter in Complexity and Geographical Economics, 2015, pp 1-9 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract The uneven geographical distribution of economic activities is a huge worldwide challenge. Spatial inequalities are evolving through time following complex patterns determined by economic, geographical, institutional and social factors. The New Economic Geography approach, which was initiated by P. Krugman in the early 1990s, describes economic systems as very simplified spatial structures. This book aims at providing an overview of the existing state of knowledge and new perspectives of research to set the basis for developing a more sophisticated modelling of the economic activities visualised as being influenced by evolving trade networks with a specific topology that is determined by the number and strength of national, regional and local links. To achieve this objective the chapters combine recent approaches in economics with the most advanced mathematical and computational methods for analysing complex and non-linear systems to build an interdisciplinary understanding of the issue.
