WORKSHOP ON MATHEMATICAL STRUCTURES AND UNCERTAINTY. WORKSHOP SUMMARY

Mathematical choice models representing travel behavior and based primarily on individual-choice theory were examined. Methods currently available can generally support decision-making for a wide range of planning problems. Current models are deficient in two areas: (1) Barriers need to be overcome to current use of the best available techniques for specific purposes, and (2) the behavioral content and accuracy of existing techniques needs to be improved. The models have generally failed to move into practice. It is suggested that methodological manuals, software support, instructional programming and documentation of successful applications be developed. Also important will be simplified applications (such as pivot-point methods), improved issue sensitivity, higher levels of precision and ability to apply model systems at differing levels of complexity.
