Modern spatial-ecomic systems exhibit a high degree of dynamics as a result of techlogical progress, demographic evolution or global change. In the past decade, an avalanche of new regional ecomic growth and invation models has been put forward. This volume contains a unique collection of operational models of a strong applied nature that may be seen as original landmarks in the rich tradition of spatial-ecomic growth modelling. The contributors are recognized experts from different parts of the world.
