SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORTATION NETWORKS

Transportation networks are essential to the functioning of societies and economies and provide infrastructure for the movement of people and goods over space and time. The existence and utilization of transportation networks are fundamental to the modern age and the negative effects of congestion and pollution associated with their increasing usage demand urgent attention. This book cogently addresses the issue of whether transportation networks are sustainable; that is, can they last, given the growing demands on the network, on the one hand, and the desire to alleviate the associated negative impacts, on the other. The author responds to the question affirmatively by providing a rigorous foundation for the formulation, analysis, and computation of solutions to such problems through the use of appropriate policies ranging from tolls and tradable pollution permits to the design of the transport networks themselves.
