Description

Urban Systems Models provides description, optimization, and analysis of the main features of highly urbanized areas. It details and shows many models intended to aid in the study of urban problems. The book focuses mainly on land use, public facility siting, population analysis, resource allocation in congested urban settings, and transportation networks. The text aims to bridge the gap between the use of applied mathematics and techniques on urban analysis. Civil and industrial engineers, transportation and urban planners, public administrators, researchers, and students in related fields will find the book very useful.
