Foreword
These
two
mathematical
discussions
oftraffic
analyses
tend
to
confirm
the
theory
that
if
we
are
properly
to
understand
traffic
we
must
learn
more
about
its
behavior;
and
that
if
we
expectto control
traffic
efficiently
and
provide
suitable
means
for
con
trol,
we
must
be
able
to uniformlypredict
traffic
patterns.
To
know
what
to expect will
provide
a
guide
to
a
rule
of
action to
fit
theproblem.
The
authors,
Mr.
Gerlough
and
Mr.
Schuhl, live
in
distantly
separated
parts
of
the
world.
It
is
safe
to
assume
they
were
motivated
in preparing
their
articles
by
their
daily
interest and
activities
in
traffic.
They
are
highly competent
and
have
that
very
valuable
ad
vantage
of
experience
so
essential
intranslating
theory
to
practice.
Continued
efforts
in
this
direction tend
to
provide an
ac
cumulation
of basic
knowledge
of
traffic
performance
and
in
time
to
evolve
newconcepts
of
our
traffic
problemwith
im
proved
ideas
in planning
and
control.
Trusting that
this
brochure
willbe
some
encouragement
to
further
research,
the Eno
Foundation
welcomes
the
opportunity
to publish
it
and
wishes
to
express
its
appreciation to
the
authors.
