Although organized transportation systems are very old indeed s, active research into their operations is relatively new Some of the problems encountered in transportation research are discussed along with methods for their solution,. The Hitchcock distribution problem is discussed and a sample problem solved using three different methods. The usefulness of graph theory in studying transportation problems is pointed out. Examples are then given of its use in a maximal network flow problem and in the problem of minimizing equipment requirements to meet a fixed schedule., Finally s some miscellaneous techniques are discussed. The writer wishes to express his appreciation for the guidance and encouragement given him by Professor Thomas E. Oberbeck of the U„ S„ Naval Postgraduate School for the helpful suggestions of the second reader Professor H.C. Ayers s and for the careful clerical assistance provided by Mrs. Norma A. Stevens.
