Abstract: 
Beckmann;s interaction model has each resident touching base in face-to-face activity with every other resident, per unit time, at the other's residence. We re-work his resulting interaction city with each resident operating with a Cobb-Douglas utility function. We then turn to a more satisfactory technology of residents interacting and solve for an interaction city with an explicit payoff to resident i for engaging in interaction.
Subjects: 
spatial interactions of city residents
productive face-to-face activity
