Book details

Book information

The book 'Railway Traffic and Transport Control' aims to promote the application of mathematical optimization techniques and operational research to solve operational, tactical, and strategic problems in railway transportation. In nine chapters, the authors provide a comprehensive view of different classes of railway decision-making problems, covering basic concepts, terminology, and taxonomy, up to the latest sophisticated developments in this field. In line with this idea, the order of the treated material follows a logical progression, starting from facilities and management levels, addressing problems of routing and scheduling, exploring digitization in rail transport, and finalizing with the solution approaches of intermodal rail transport issues.
