Discrete Choice Modelling and Air Travel Demand

5 January 2011

**Discrete Choice Modelling and Air Travel Demand**

In recent years, airline practitioners and academics have started to explore new ways to model airline passenger demand using discrete choice methods. This book provides an introduction to discrete choice models and uses extensive examples to illustrate how these models have been used in the airline industry. These examples span network planning, revenue management, and pricing applications. Numerous examples of fundamental logit modeling concepts are covered in the text, including probability calculations, value of time calculations, elasticity calculations, nested and non-nested likelihood ratio tests, etc. The core chapters of the book are written at a level appropriate for airline practitioners and graduate students with operations research or travel demand modeling backgrounds. Given the majority of discrete choice modeling advancements in transportation evolved from urban travel demand studies, the introduction first orients readers from different backgrounds by highlighting major distinctions between aviation and urban travel demand studies. This is followed by an in-depth treatment of two of the most common discrete choice models, namely the multinomial and nested logit models. More advanced discrete choice models are covered, including mixed logit models and generalized extreme value models that belong to the generalized nested logit class and/or the network generalized extreme value class. An emphasis is placed on highlighting open research questions associated with these models that will be of particular interest to operations research students. Practical modeling issues related to data and estimation software are also addressed, and an extensive modeling exercise focused on the interpretation and application of statistical tests used to guide the selection of a preferred model specification is included; the modeling exercise uses itinerary choice data from a major airline. The text concludes with a discussion of on-going customer modeling research in aviation. "Discrete Choice Modelling and Air Travel Demand" is enriched by a comprehensive set of technical appendices that will be of particular interest to advanced students of discrete choice modeling theory. The appendices also include detailed proofs of the multinomial and nested logit models and derivations of measures used to represent competition among alternatives, namely correlation, direct-elasticities, and cross-elasticities. ...

Discrete Calculus: Applied Analysis on Graphs for Computational Science

27 July 2010

**Discrete Calculus: Applied Analysis on Graphs for Computational Science**

Publisher: Springer | 2010 | PDF | 377 pages | ISBN: 1849962898 | 8.2Mb

The field of discrete calculus, also known as “discrete exterior calculus”, focuses on finding a proper set of definitions and differential operators that make it possible to operate the machinery of multivariate calculus on a finite, discrete space. In contrast to traditional goals of finding an accurate discretization of conventional multivariate calculus, discrete calculus establishes a separate, equivalent calculus that operates purely in the discrete space without any reference to an underlying continuous process. This unique text brings together into a single framework current research in the three areas of discrete calculus, complex networks, and algorithmic content extraction. Although there have been a few intersections in the literature between these disciplines, they have developed largely independently of one another, yet researchers working in any one of these three areas can strongly benefit from the tools and techniques being used in the others. Many example applications from several fields of computational science are provided to demonstrate the usefulness of this framework to a broad range of problems. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the basics of vector calculus, graph theory, and linear algebra.

**Realization Theory of Discrete-Time Dynamical Systems**

This monograph extends Realization Theory to the discrete-time domain. It includes new results and constructs a new and very wide inclusion relation for various non-linear dynamical systems. After establishing some features of discrete-time dynamical systems it presents results concerning systems which are proposed by the authors for the first time. They introduce General Dynamical Systems, Linear Representation Systems, Affine Dynamical Systems, Pseudo Linear Systems, Almost Linear Systems and So-called Linear Systems for discrete-time and demonstrate the relationship between them and the other dynamical systems. This book is intended for graduate students and researchers who study control theory. ...

**Special Set Linear Algebra and Special Set Fuzzy Linear Algebra**

Publisher: CuArt | pages: 467 | 2010 | ISBN: 1599731061 | PDF | 10,5 mb

Special Set Linear Algebras introduced by the authors in this book is an extension of Set Linear Algebras, which are the most generalized form of linear algebras. These structures can be applied to multi-expert models. The dominance of computers in everyday life calls for a paradigm shift in the concepts of linear algebras. The authors belief that special set linear algebra will cater to that need.

Linear Algebra and Smarandache Linear Algebra

8 November 2010

**Linear Algebra and Smarandache Linear Algebra**

This book is divided into four chapters. The first chapter is divided into ten sections which deal with, and introduce, all notions of linear algebra. In the second chapter, on Smarandache Linear Algebra, we provide the Smarandache analogues of the various concepts related to linear algebra. Chapter three suggests some application of Smarandache linear algebra. We indicate that Smarandache vector spaces of type II will be used in the study of neutrosophic logic and its applications to Markov chains and Leontief Economic models – both of these research topics have intense industrial applications. The final chapter gives 131 significant problems of interest, and finding solutions to them will greatly increase the research carried out in Smarandache linear algebra and its applications....
