Modelling the Internet as a Geographical System ()

This project aims to model Internet transactions as a time-dependent random walk relative to the 24-hour rotation of the Earth. The dynamics of global distance-time interactions will be tested from Internet experiments and data bases. Case studies of retail transactions of connected households in Sydney and Brisbane will explore its socio-economic underpinnings. The project is significant in that it specifically defines the character of global Internet flows with a possibility of commercial advantage to Australia in understanding how the geography of time zones affects its dynamics.
