TOTAL REVENUE CURVE, MONOPOLISTIC COMPETITION: A curve that graphically represents the relation between total revenue received by a monopolistically competitive firm for selling its output and the quantity of output sold. It is used with the firm's total cost curve to determine economic profit. The marginal revenue curve, a key factor for determining the profit-maximizing level of a firm's output, is derived directly from the total revenue curve. The slope of this total revenue curve is marginal revenue. This curve is constructed to capture the relation between total revenue and the level of output, holding other variables constant.

VON THUNEN MODEL: A model of land use develop by Johann von Thunen that illustrates the trade off between land values and the distance from a central point of attraction. While originally applied to agricultural land use, the von Thunen model is commonly used to explain urban land use patterns. Two primary conclusions from the model are (1) that land values decrease as distance from the central point of attraction increases and (2) that different land use activities are contained in concentric rings equal distance from the central point of attraction based on the weight (or transportation cost) of the activity.
