Abstract

Segregation is perceived as a large-scale urban phenomenon, but emerges from the interactions between individuals at a local level. There are three patterns of residential segregation that are known by the names of those who formalized empirical evidences on the spatial distribution of social classes: they are called Kohl, Burgess and Hoyt. Comprehend how this patterns emerge and evolve along the time is essential to analyze and understand the urban dynamics. As agent-based modeling is a powerful simulation technique, these three models were simulated for understand how them emerge and evolve at time.
