This paper deals with general methodological questions of urban systems modeling. The main feature of the models under discussion is their analogy with models derived by the use of statistics. This analogy is extended and generalized to take into account the structure of a priori spatial preferences of urban residents. Abstract systems that have been constructed following this approach can be applied to the analysis and simulation of individual urban subsystems as well as of the urban systems as a whole.
