  • Ovidiu Racorean

Abstract

A proposal for a dynamical potential of population displacements (named gravitational potential) between economic regions will be given. For a particular ideal chosen case,the gravitational potential is acting as a wave. An equation of the wave form will be given for gravitational potential-gravitational wave in economics.
