Agent-Based Verification of Von Thünen's Location Theory
The spatial pattern as described by von ThÃ¼nen is considered an optimal solution to maximize society's well-being in a hypothetical environment. We developed a model to demonstrate whether a collection of autonomous individuals can contribute to the formation of this optimal pattern, without any system-level optimization capabilities. We also analyzed the mechanism that leads to an emergent spatial optimization by applying theories of positive feedbacks and lock-in.
