Abstract

In this chapter we introduce the basic theoretical framework to be employed throughout the rest of the book. The formal details of the framework will be developed in a more abstract theoretical setting in Chapter 3 below. Hence the objectives here are to introduce the main concepts in an informal manner, and to illustrate their meaning in terms of simple examples. To do so, we begin in Section 1.2 below with a consideration of the basic theoretical perspectives embodied in the present approach to spatial interaction behavior.
