Analysis of Urban Rail Transit Based on Complex Network


Article Preview

The development of urban rail transit plays the more and more important role in the public transit. It’s significant to analyze the urban rail transit network characteristics and its stability. The basic statistics parameters of Beijing metro network are computed in the paper based on the theory of complex networks, and its network characteristic is analyzed through the comparison to characteristic parameters of four typical networks.
