  1. 1. Efficiency and acceptability of pricing policies and transport investments in distorted economies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jonas Westin; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; road pricing; transport investment; cost-benefit analysis; tax distortions; transport policies; welfare effects; political economy; acceptability; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Abstract : This thesis contains five papers studying the economic efficiency and political acceptability of road pricing policies and transport investments in distorted economies. Interactions between the transport market and other distorted markets, such as the labor market, can have a large impact on the welfare effect of a road pricing policy or a transport investment.

  2. 2. Turbulent and neoclassical transport in tokamak plasmas

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : István Pusztai; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fusion; Fusion; Plasmafysik; Plasma physics; thermonuclear fusion; tokamaks; microinstabilities; turbulent transport; neoclassical transport; transport barriers; impurity transport; isotope effect; transport analysis;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges of thermonuclear fusion is to understand, predict and to some extent control particle and energy transport in fusion plasmas. In the present thesis we consider theoretical and experimental aspects of collisional and turbulent transport in tokamak plasmas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Welfare Effects of Transport Policies an analysis of congestion pricing and infrastructure investments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jonas Westin; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; congestion charge; cost-benefit analysis; tax distortions; transport investment; transport policies; welfare effects; SOCIAL SCIENCES Business and economics Economics; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Ekonomi Nationalekonomi; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Abstract : Interactions between the transport market and other distorted markets, such as the labor market, can have a large impact on the overall welfare effect of a road pricing policy or a congestion charge. Many road pricing studies therefore try to incorporate effects from other distorted markets in the analysis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sustainable Freight Transport from an Urban Perspective

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Sönke Behrends; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Övrig industriell teknik och ekonomi; Other industrial engineering and economics; Sustainability; sustainable transport; urban freight transport; rail transport; intermodal transport;

    Abstract : The trend of growing road freight transport causes significant negative impacts on the society, economy and environment. A substantial share of the road freight sector’s externalities is imposed on urban areas because cities are the main destination for freight flows either for production, consumption or for transfer to other locations.
