Chapter 2: Social Segregation 
[1] ONS Population Estimates by Ethnic Group, 2001 to 2005 Exercises: (1) Formulate a mathematical model that can evaluate the level of segregation. For example, x_{ij} is the proportion of ethnic group i at district j. Suppose there are n ethnic groups and m districts. Then y = f(x_{11},..., x_{nm}) can give the level of segregation for the whole area. More segregated distribution should obtain larger y. (2) Implement Schelling's model. Agents can migrate to their new preferred locations by the evaluation of racial/ethnic composition. For example. one can decide to migrate if the proportion of its own ethnicity is larger than 50%. The simulation area can be a one or two dimentional checkerboard. Random initial distribution can be applied. Animation of the simulation results is preferred.
