Overview

In the first of 18 contributed chapters, Hall (industrial and systems engineering, U. of Southern California) introduces the volume's premise that transportation is a scientific discipline. New chapters address principles of transportation economics, with emphases on public policy and pricing; spatial interaction models, which aid analysis of patterns of development; and applications of network design to freight and public transportation. Updated chapters offer a state-of-the-art review of human factors in travel demand and safety (toward fully automated vehicle control); traffic flow, capacity, and control; and spatial, routing, network, and economic models. The date of the first edition is not given. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book comprehends all main parts, which constitute the transportation science. It starts with the elements, which concern short-time traveller behaviours as followed routes, time of travel and the choice of destination or mode. … To conclude this review, it can be stated that this book covers all directions of current transportation research and it constitutes a useful guide for researcher and practitioners in the field of transport." (Jaroslav Janácek, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1103 (5), 2007)
