Mathematical Location and Land Use Theory: An Introduction by Professor Dr. Tönu Puu (auth.)

By Professor Dr. Tönu Puu (auth.)

Puu, Mathematical situation and Land Use idea, second rev. and enl. edition

Extracts from stories to the 1st edition:

"This e-book is a wonderful advent to the idea of constant place of monetary actions in two-dimensional area in keeping with differential equations and to their answer by way of vector calculus methods.

As Puu states "good technological know-how is to be simply understood. This publication is, certainly, a lucid and simply readable advent to the basic techniques of spatial financial conception and the differential calculus equipment of the continual transportation model."

K. C. Mosler in "Location Science"

"This booklet represents a good try out at introducing spatial fiscal idea. the writer doesn't seem to be attracted to exhibiting off his seen mathematical talents. His goal is to summarize the collected wisdom within the box and current the most ends up in an easy demeanour. He does an admirable activity. Of support are the high quality pics, the omission of semicooked principles and messy effects, and the author's large adventure at the topic over an extended interval of time."

P. S. Kanaroglou in "Environment and Planning"

It might seem to be a matter of course that an extremal route must be a minimum and not a maximum, because there is obviously no limit to how much transportation cost can be increased, by making the route longer and longer. Though this is true globally, we should remember that the Euler Equation gives us a local extremum, derived for marginal variations only, and there is no obstacle to the existence of local maxima. Thus the problem is not so easy after all, and was in fact the object of a notorious controversy on "the principle of least action" between Maupertuis and Voltaire, ultimately involving several Academies of Sciences and their Royal Patrons.

All the interior points need to communicate with the remote continent, and the paths are broken at the circular coastline. We see that traffic forms a caustic of extremely intense traffic in the interior - exactly as in the case of light causing a so called caustic in a cup of coffee. It is obvious that, quite as in optics, there would be no aberration if the coastline were parabolic instead of circular. Then the all the traffic rays would pass through one single focus point. 8 Geodesics on Curved Surfaces Spatial economics lives in the interface between Economics and Geography and there have been important contributions from both disciplines.

This technical term means that the local magnification factor is independent of direction. Intuitively it can be conjectured that the magnification factor equals the cost rate, thus increasing distances to conform with transit cost, and absorbing cost in the measure of distance. Such local magnifications of a surface necessarily make it curved. It is like an originally flat paper that absorbs moisture, so that some parts swell more than other, making the paper buckled. The other nice thing with conformal maps is that it does not alter angles between intersecting curves.
