Urban Transportation Networks

Equilibrium Analysis with Mathematical Programming Methods

In this up-to-date book, Yosef Sheffi presents a mathematical and theoretical subject in a unified and simple approach. The author emphasizes engineering applications; the mathematical statements are motivated and demonstrated rather than rigorously proved. Detailed algorithm descriptions and flow charts are included.


Among its features, the book:

  • offers material that is up to date and accessible
  • covers the area of traffic assignment models
  • includes deterministic models of user equilibrium and models of stochastic equilibrium
  • contains models of equilibrium with elastic demand, distribution.assignment models, and models that combine trip generation, modal split, trip distribution, and traffic assignment
  • provides all the necessary mathematical background so you need only college-level calculus and introductory concepts in probability and computer programming
  • presents methods for obtaining the necessary inputs to the analysis of urban transportation networks
