Honoring David Boyce for his legendary contributions to the fields of transportation modeling and regional science, the chapters in this festschrift highlight and analyze state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice methodologies and theories in transportation modeling, regional and urban planning.

Authors from academia and industry, all experts in planning, engineering, management, economics and related disciplines, provide important new contributions to this wide-ranging literature, as well as extensions of David Boyce’s seminal work. This volume goes well beyond the traditional festschrift and stands as an important reference tool in its own right.

Academics, researchers and students will find this comprehensive volume a valuable additional to their library.
‘This volume is an intellectual pleasure to read. It demonstrates convincingly that advanced transportation modeling is able to discover unknown scientific territory. The book also witnesses the formidable progress made in the past decades in mapping out complex spatially interacting systems by means of sophisticated urban and regional transportation modeling. This study testifies the pioneering work of David Boyce.’
– Peter Nijkamp, VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands

‘This collection in honor of David Boyce contains genuinely interesting and quality papers that reflect the diversity of interests of the honoree. David Boyce has made a number of significant contributions at the interface of transportation and regional science. He has been a pioneer of injecting rigor and consistency into spatial analysis. The papers here both reflect the ethos of this copious body of analysis and take it further in extensions and applications. It will prove to be an enduring source of ideas and insight.’
