We assumed that knowledge is exogenously given. However, when we study spatial economic evolution, it is too strict to assume knowledge as a given parameter in the dynamic process. Knowledge creation and utilization is the driving force of modem economic development. A main issue in economics is concerned with dynamic interactions between economic growth, knowledge creation and utilization. The literature on economic development has recently been centered on identifying different aspects of dynamic interactions between growth and knowledge accumulation.
