Introduction

  • Objective: To provide a structured plan consisting of classic academic papers to help users learn quantitative spatial equilibrium in urban economics.

  • Focus: The plan will include seminal papers and key readings in the field of urban economics, particularly those that address quantitative spatial equilibrium models.

  • Approach: The plan will be organized step-by-step, starting from foundational concepts to advanced applications.
