People as planets: a gravity model for inter-municipalmobility

Jeferson F. Mendes, Leonardo B. L. Santos, Hugo Saba


Newton’s law of gravitation states that any particle of matter in the universe attracts eachother with a force that varies with their masses and the distance between them, such thatFg=Gm1m2/d2. Centuries later, this idea was extended [2] to allow modeling not only the gravitationalattraction between planets but also human mobility “attraction” between regions. [...]
