This book represents the proceedings of a conference held at Kobe
University, that brought together some of the world's leading researchers in the field of
transportation planning and policy.
It contains a compendium of papers representing state-of-the-art research
on topics of competition and regulation and system structure in air and maritime
transportation. This book is a valuable resource for researchers and others who can use it as a starting point for advancing the state of knowledge in important topics of transportation systems management. It can also serve as a textbook for an advanced graduate course in transportation, economics, or public policy as applied to maritime transportation and air transportation. As such it is the first text of its kind.
"...offers many new insights of a high level for students, researchers, and planners in the area of transport economics. Personally I was very much impressed by the sophisticiated modeling efforts and experiments in this book."
