EUROPE ON THE MOVE: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN EUROPEAN COMMUNICATIONS AND TRANSPORT ACTIVITY RESEARCH. CHAPTER 16. STATIC AND DYNAMIC SPATIAL INTERACTION MODELS: AN INTEGRATING PERSPECTIVE

The authors consider spatial interaction models (SIMs) and suggest that they may form the basis for many other static and dynamic models widely used in transportation studies and related applications. A doubly- constrained SIM is first formulated using the propulsiveness of origins and the attractiveness of destinations as exogenously given and a known number of outflows and inflows to links between these origins and destinations. The relevance of SIMs in a static context is considered. The dynamic context is then examined with a discussion of logistic functions and an overview of the most frequently used dynamic interaction models. The evolution of models is discussed and areas for research identified. For the covering abstract see IRRD 863675.
