Description:

This book is a collection of selected presentations of the 6 th Meeting of the EURO Working Group on Transportation, which took place at the Department on Mathematics at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. It contains fourteen chapters on recent advances in theory, computation, and practice in a wide variety of areas in transportation research such as the reliability of transportation networks, parking management policies, fuzzy traffic signal control, the workings of a demand-responsive park and ride transport system, and an analysis of car ownership in different countries based on demographic data. Audience: The text is useful for students in transportation science,…
