Abstract

Knowing and modelling the migration phenomena and especially the social and economic consequences have a theoretical and practical importance, being related to their consequences for development, economic progress (or as appropriate, regression), environmental influences etc. One of the causes of migration, especially of the interregional and why not intercontinental, is that resources are unevenly distributed, and from the human perspective there are differences in culture, education, mentality, collective aspirations etc. This study proposes a new econophysics model for the migration phenomena.
