Abstract

An algebraic examination of spatial models leads to the conclusion that a convenient description of the pattern of flows implicit in a geographical interaction table is obtained by displaying a field of vectors computed from the relative net exchanges. The vector field approximates the gradient of a scalar potential, and this may be invoked to explain the flows. The method can be applied to asymmetrical tables of a non-geographical nature.
