This paper addresses the implications of the well-known ceteris paribus postulate for spatial-economic equilibrium analysis under conditions of complex (non-linear dynamic) interactions in open systems. Under ever changing (e.g., evolutionary) conditions, there is a need for adjusting the standard tools in spatial-economic analysis, with more emphasis on evolutionary algorithms and computer simulations to offer a solid statistical underpinning of regional analysis. © 2007 Elsevier B.V.
