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.

Kernel-based formulation of intervening opportunities for spatial interaction modelling

The mobility patterns resulting from the modified radiation model that included kernel-based intervening opportunities outperformed the original radiation model when fitted to four datasets of inter-regional flows.

Radiation model for migration with directional preferences.

This work proposes a modification of the radiation model that introduces a dependence on the angle between any two alternative potential destinations, accounting for the possibility that migrants may have preferences about the approximate direction of their move.

Generalized radiation model for human migration

The generalized radiation model is extended to include the number of amenities as features aside from population to provide a measure of feature importance thus presenting another avenue for investigating the effect of amenities on human migration.

An Interactive City Choice Model and Its Application for Measuring the Intercity Interaction

Measuring the interaction between cities is an important research topic in many disciplines, such as sociology, geography, economics, and transportation science. The traditional and most widely used

Population Prediction of Chinese Prefecture-Level Cities Based on Multiple Models

In recent years, the population growth rate has been gradually declining in China. As the population problem becomes increasingly significant, the accurate prediction of population development trends

The education-chasing labor rush in China identified by a heterogeneous migration-network game

A population game model in which migrants are allowed to be heterogeneous and decide interactively on their destination, the resulting migration network emerges naturally as an Nash equilibrium and depends continuously on migrant features.



Universal predictability of mobility patterns in cities

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.

Understanding individual human mobility patterns

The trajectory of 100,000 anonymized mobile phone users whose position is tracked for a six-month period is studied, finding that, in contrast with the random trajectories predicted by the prevailing Lévy flight and random walk models, human trajectories show a high degree of temporal and spatial regularity.

Predicting commuter flows in spatial networks using a radiation model based on temporal ranges

This work shows that traffic can efficiently and accurately be computed from a range-limited, network betweenness type calculation, and introduces a first-principles based method by generalizing the radiation model to flows in spatial networks, which they apply to predict commuter flows in a highway network.

The scaling of human mobility by taxis is exponential

Application of gravity model on the Korean urban bus network

Universal model of individual and population mobility on diverse spatial scales

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.

A Generalized Radiation Model for Human Mobility: Spatial Scale, Searching Direction and Trip Constraint

The generalized radiation model, as an analog to the generalization of the classic “gravity model”, to consolidate its nature of universality for modeling diverse mobility systems, accurately captures real human movements in various scenarios and spatial scales.

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.
