The reaction– diffusion theory, conceived at the beginning of the 20th Century and then perfectioned by A. Turing, takes up Heraclitus’ idea that any creation of forms is the product of a clash between two. The matter – called geographical diffusion – is not discussed widely in the messages of our sources but we can find some references to it.

In geography, the term diffusion refers to the spread of people, things, ideas, cultural practices, disease, technology, weather, and other factors from place to place. This kind of proliferation is known as spatial diffusion. The three main types of this phenomenon are expansion diffusion, stimulus diffusion, and relocation diffusion.

The theory was created by the german geographer walter christaller, who asserted that settlements simply functioned as 'central places' providing services to surrounding areas.

It provides a comprehensive overview of existing techniques, and presents - for the first time in book form - many new techniques and approaches. An elementary. This book, the first work in English on the history of disease in China, traces an epidemic of bubonic plague that began in Yunnan province in the late eighteenth century, spread throughout much of southern China in the nineteenth century, and eventually exploded on the world scene as a global pandemic at the end of the century.

They believed that most inventions happened just once and men being capable of imitation, these inventions were then diffused to other places. Therefore, the information diffusion theory has unique advantages in natural disaster risk assessment and management. This chapter presents a Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and information diffusion theory-based methodology for spatio-temporal risk assessment of natural disasters, taking grassland fire disasters in the Northern China as.

Barriers to diffusion may be physical or cultural, such as differences in languages or levels of technology. Since spatial diffusion takes place on many different scales, chapter three focuses on the various models of individual or micro-level diffusion, urban diffusion, regional diffusion, and macro-level (or national and international) diffusion.Agriculture: An Example of Spatial Diffusion Agriculture provides a good example of an almost universal spread of an innovation.
