Document title

The quasi-symmetric side of gravity modelling

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The A. investigates here quasi-symmetry per se, in contrast to geographical tradition. The size-utility-accessibility parameterization of migration counts turn out to rely exclusively upon the quasi-symmetry of flows. Various facets of quasi-symmetry are presented and put in correspondence with Markov chains theory, decision theory and alternative classical statistical models. Existing as well as presumably new estimation and model selection procedures are discussed in a way which unifies different traditions in gravity modelling
