Abstract

We present a selective review of migration and its connection with the economy, focusing on issues leading towards a modelling perspective.We introduce a class of models based on difference equations on directed graphs that may provide a quantitative and qualitative description of human migration and present some of their bioeconomic, mathematical and simulation challenges.
