Timetable planning and information quality

The book comprises a number of research papers presented at several Computers in Railways Conferences. The book can serve as an introduction to the theory of railway traffic, timetable design, operations analysis, simulation, safety and control for Master and PhD students from engineering faculties and professionals working in the railway industry.
