Abstract

Since the publication of a paper by Clark in 1951, the negative exponential model, Y=Ae(-bx), has been widely accepted as the spatial pattern of intraurban population density distribution. This model is based on the assumption that the population densities of cities can be approximated by a circularly symmetric pattern and that the negative exponential function gives a reasonable fit.
