The Emergence of Optimal Agglomeration in Dynamic Economics


We analyze endogenous pattern formation resulting from forward-looking optimizing behavior of economic agents in the presence of spatial spillovers modelled by continuous kernels. We use Fourier methods to identify necessary and sufficient conditions for the emergence of optimal agglomeration through an optimal spillover induced instability of a spatially… (More)
