This work presents a population-weighted opportunities model without any adjustable parameters to capture the underlying driving force accounting for human mobility patterns at the city scale, and finds that insofar as the spatial distribution of population is available, it offers universal prediction of mobility patterns in good agreement with real observations.
Diversity of individual mobility patterns and emergence of aggregated scaling laws
The direct travel diaries of volunteers are shown to show the absence of scaling properties in the displacement distribution at the individual level, while the aggregated displacement distribution follows a power law with an exponential cutoff.
Unified underpinning of human mobility in the real world and cyberspace
This work develops a minimal, memory-based random walk model in limited space for reproducing, with a single parameter, the key statistical behaviors characterizing human movements in both cases, suggesting memory- based random walk dynamics as the unified underpinning for human mobility, regardless of whether it occurs in the real world or in cyberspace.

A unified model that accurately predicts both individual and population mobility and scaling behaviors on diverse spatial scales is developed by combining memory effect and population-induced competition to enable accurate prediction of human mobility based on population distribution only.
Exact Solution of the Gyration Radius of an Individual's Trajectory for a Simplified Human Regular Mobility Model
We propose a simplified human regular mobility model to simulate an individual's daily travel with three sequential activities: commuting to workplace, going to do leisure activities and returning…

Destination choice game: A spatial interaction theory on human mobility
This work proposes a microscopic mechanism underlying mobility decisions, named destination choice game (DCG), which takes into account the crowding effects resulted from spatial interactions among individuals, and shows more accurate prediction on mobility fluxes across wide scales from intracity trips to intercity travels, and further to internal migrations.
A universal opportunity model for human mobility
This work develops a universal opportunity model that considers two human behavioral tendencies: one is the exploratory tendency, and the other is the cautious tendency and establishes a new framework in IO class models and covers the classical radiation model and opportunity priority selection model.
Topological Properties of Public Transport Networks: A Temporal Perspective
An empirical analysis of the topological properties of PTN based on the bus networks data of Shijiazhuang from 1996 to 2008 finds that the PTN is a small-world, accelerated growing network and a hybrid between a scale-free and a random network.
