9781402072468: Handbook of Transportation Science (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)

Over the past thirty-five years, a substantial amount of theoretical and empirical scholarly research has been developed across the discipline domains of Transportation. This research has been synthesized into a systematic handbook that examines the scientific concepts, methods, and principles of this growing and evolving field. The Handbook of Transportation Science outlines the field of transportation as a scientific discipline that transcends transportation technology and methods. Whether by car, truck, airplane - or by a mode of transportation that has not yet been conceived - transportation obeys fundamental properties. The science of transportation defines these properties, and demonstrates how our knowledge of one mode of transportation can be used to explain the behavior of another. Transportation scientists are motivated by the desire to explain spatial interactions that result in movement of people or objects from place to place. Its methodologies draw from physics, operations research, probability and control theory.

Review:

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)
