Environment and Planning A | Published : 1979
An earlier paper (Webber and Joseph, 1978) proposed a model of the process whereby messages diffuse between a system of cities and provided a means of approximating the solution to the model if cities can self-infect themselves with the message. This paper continues the analysis of this model by investigating the case in which a city cannot send the message itself. The analysis is numerical, and an alternative to Monte Carlo simulation is used. -from Authors
