However, they are more frequently simply modeled as economies for a given industry as a function of the size of the urban area itself directly, and Ellison, Glaeser, and Kerr (2010) show that this Marshallian industrial district’s model empirically explains industrial location and urban-scale patterns quite strongly, without any reference to any use of the Krugman application of the demand-side Dixit–Stiglitz approach.

In particular, higher migration speeds can lead the system to overshoot the symmetric equilibrium if it does not start from there initially, which also emphasizes that the system is sensitive to starting-point conditions. If such an overshoot occurs, then it is possible for cycles to emerge where workers migrate back and forth, with the possibility of a core–periphery outcome also obtaining. As the migration speed increases or the transport costs increase, period-doubling bifurcations can occur, and chaotic dynamics can emerge.

Each of these revolutions has been associated with a complete restructuring of the world system of city hierarchies. To summarize this, he presents a general model of changes in commodity production, x, knowledge infrastructure, z, and network infrastructure, y, as functions of each other, depreciation rates, and various other constants and control variables. He argues that discontinuous changes in production, x, can arise from continuous changes in network infrastructure, y. This is depicted in Fig.
