About these proceedings
This volume on the proceedings of a symposium on Resource Allocation and Division of Space represents a revised interest in the old problem of allocation and a fresh attack on the increasingly vital problem of space management. The symposium was held at the Toba International Hotel, near Nagoya, Japan in December, 1975. Although the contributions included in this volume are all broadly concerned with either resource allocation or spatial problems, the editors have selected papers essentially on the basis of scientific merits and orginality rather than on the basis of narrowly focused topics and titles. The result is that all of the papers included, ranging from growth, index number, space density function, factor mobility, concentration and accumulation between sectors and spaces, distributions, relationship between spatial structure and organizational structure to the application of Lie group to production functions, are of the highest quality. It is the intention and belief of the editors that this collection of wide ranging but highly original papers is a major contribution to the advancement of economic science. The editors feel that a symposium of this kind is worthwhile and should be held at regular intervals. The list of contributions can be divided into two parts. Part I, consisting of papers 1 through 9, deals in general with allocation. Papers 10 through 13 compose Part II, which is primarily concerned with spatial problems.
