We research dynamic interdependence among capital accumulation, wisdom construction and usage, economicgrowth, cost structuresand city trend formation below unfastened pageant. the idea is built at the basisofa few thoughts inside a compact framework. The comparative good thing about our concept is that during offering wealthy insights into complicated of spatial economies it makes use of just a couple of suggestions and simplified sensible kinds and accepts a couple of assumptions approximately habit of customers, manufacturers, and institutionalstructures.

The isolated state consists of a finite strip of land extending from a fixed central business district (CBD) with constant unit width. We asswne that all economic activities are concentrated in the CBD. The households occupy the residential area. We asswne that the CBD is located at the left-side end of the linear territory, as illustrated in Fig. 1. As we can get similar conclusions if we locate the CBD at the center of the linear system, the special location will not essentially affect our discussion.
1 0) in which l-s N SI=--' We require y(w,t) > O . This is guaranteed if sY / N > LV, which simply implies that the total budget on consumption is more than the cost for any worker to travel from the CBD to the boundary of the island. In the remainder of this chapter it is assumed that this requirement is satisfied. We denote by n(cu,t) the residential density at dwelling site cu . According to the definitions, we have n(co, t) = 1 Lh(w,t) , O:s; ca :s; L. 1 The Urban Dynamics 47 The population is given by L 21r In(aJ,t)co dto o = N.
We explicitly deal with three important and connected aspects of urban economics: growth of production and housing sectors, capital accumulation, and distribution of population over time and space within a compact framework. The remainder of this chapter is organized as follows. 1 defines the basic model. 2 shows how we can solve the dynamics with economic geography. 3 guarantees the existence of equilibrium and examines stability of the dynamic system. 5 examine, respectively, the effects of changes in the population and the propensity to hold wealth on the long-run growth and economic geography.
