Qualitative Impact Analysis for Dynamic Spatial Systems

Abstract

This paper focuses attention on qualitative impact analysis for spatial dynamics. It aims at developing new analytical tools for describing absolute and relative dynamics of spatial evolution based on either a simple core-ring model or a more general core-ring-periphery model, based on a semi-ordinal sign analysis. Although the number of qualitative categories of possible states of an urban/regional system may be very large, the spatio-temporal evolution of such systems (based on the spatial cycle hypothesis) exhibits fairly uniform patterns.
