Part of the Contributions to Economics book series (CE)


The article views theoretical and methodological approaches to building and computer analysis of economic & mathematical models for study of development of Russian small towns in view of distribution of investment flows. Expedience of computer modeling on the basis of mathematical models is substantiated, which supposes creation of cognitive graphical & analytical maps that allow modeling the interaction between factors that are complex to formalize and the most significant ties between them.
