Basic/Programming Seminar on Transportation Theory (Y2017)

As a start-up, Fukuda Laboratory conducts a basic seminar on the three major basic theories required for traffic analysis in the first 2-3 months of the academic year. In 2017, the seminar aimed at to learn the basic theories and application methods (programming skills) for the two topics of “travel behavior analysis” and “traffic network analysis”. The seminar was held in the graduate course of Prof. Marco Nie on “Traffic Flow Theory”.]

Textbooks used:

  • “Analysis and Modeling of Traffic Behavior: Theory/Model/Survey/Application” (Ryuichi Kitamura and Takayuki Morikawa [editors])
  • “Equilibrium Analysis of Transportation Networks” (JSCE [editor])

Programming languages used:

  • Python (some functions in Pythonbiogeme)
  • R
