Abstract

There was a time, in the rather recent past, where it was relatively easy to classify contributions to regional science in terms of contributions to specific sub-fields, such as location theory, transportation systems analysis, regional economic modeling and so forth. In the interim, enormous strides have been taken to combine many of the prevailing modeling paradigms into more comprehensive, integrated systems. As a result of these processes, considerable progress has been made in solving problems at the “edge” of the sub-fields; the intellectual spillover from these challenges has been considerable and is reflected in many of the contributions in this volume.
