Above all, because Dixit-Stiglitz-type markets have a large number of firms -- usually represented as a continuum -- we are able to reconcile two seemingly incompatible goals: respecting the integer nature of individual choices under increasing returns each good will typically be produced in only location while representing the aggregate of such choices with continuous variables such as the share of production carried out in a particular location.
