A Simple, Analytically Solvable Chamberlinian Agglomeration Model

  • Pflüger, Michael P.


    (University of Würzburg)

Registered author(s):

    This paper presents a simple, analytically solvable Chamberlinian agglomeration model. As in the canonical core-periphery (CP) model, two agglomerative forces are at work. However, the present model exhibits a ’pitchfork bifurcation’ rather than the ’tomahawk bifurcation’ of the CP model.
