I. BOOKS and MONOGRAPHS

1975 (Doctoral Dissertation) "The Urban Residential System: Spatial Simulations," Department of Geography, University of Iowa (Ann Arbor: Microfilm). (619 pages in two volumes)

This was the first macro-recursive metropolitan model to represent the spatial and temporal interaction between the markets for labor and housing in the simulation of the evolving spatial configuration of large urban regions. Development and testing of the Residential System Simulation Model (RSSM) composed of seven sub-models. Market demand is represented in thirty categories of households arrayed over as many as eighty residential zones. Household income and work location are determined in interaction with up to ten major metropolitan employment centers. Housing supply incorporates the dual effects of housing and neighborhood transition. A matching routine assigns searching households to available dwelling units in accord with residential preference functions and capacity to pay.
