To the Law of the Primate City

Jaromír Korčák

The author treats of the Jefferson's Law of the Primate City as seen from several different viewpoints. He has studied 264 world areas (states, islands, etc) and has focused his attention especially on the primate and next-to-primate cities. He has been also interested in the distances between these cities, which was studied for the first time in this correlation.
