Three rather aggregate approaches to modeling interregional migration processes within a national urban settlement systems context are described. General, modified penalty function methods of non-linear programming are developed and then adapted for application to the simplest of the three migration models. The numerical convergence properties of the procedure are discussed. Some of the numerical results for a Canadian urban system case study-are interpreted. Finally, some extensions to the procedures used in this study as well as alternative approaches to the same or similar problems are suggested.
