Abstract

This paper is intended as a contribution to the research program being carried out by the Regional Development Task at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. The program is concerned with the development of a model system for application in regional development planning. Although work on the model system is already at an advanced stage, several models have yet to be developed, among which is a settlement-system model for a rural region.

The settlement network is a hierarchical system, hence its activities should be considered within hierarchical framework. So far, such an approach to the location of economic activities is at an initial stage.

In this paper several models of the optimal location of economic activities are reviewed. The models are distinguished by their concern for location problems in hierarchical settlement systems in rural regions. They have been selected from the existing literature on the basis of their potential for further research.
