Abstract : This monograph concerns the structure, geometry, mesh, pattern, or layout of transportation networks. These words convey notions of the arrangements of routes, intersections, and terminals on the earth's surface, and these notions provide an adequate general identification of the concern of this research. Operational definitions are used when particular subjects are treated. For instance, a later section treats changes in the structures of networks when transportation systems are expanded and operational definitions are given at that time consistent with the needs of the subject. Suitable operational definitions are given for the comparison of transportation networks with each other.
