Stochastic control of population distributions in Greece

Γεώργιος Ν. Τζιαφέτας


This paper is concerned with the stochastic control of population distributed on 9
geographic regions in Greece. Particularly, having the transition matrix between
urban, semi-urban and rural pupulation and the corresponding growth operator
matrix in each geographic region, we determine the maintainable and attainable
region of the population distribution and the corresponding intervention factor to obtain
a desired population distribution. These results of the analysis seems to be very
helpful in the regional planning.
