This book presents leading recent studies on the application of formal modeling for improved delivery of public services. It very significantly updates and extends the type of material found in Operations Research for Public Systems(MIT Press, 1967), which began to organize studies about public systems. Most of the chapters can be read with or without detailed consideration of their technical content. For clarity and compactness, much of the intermediate mathematical detail is referenced to other sources. The editors and authors have striven to make it possible for administrators, who may have limited analytic backgrounds, to use this book to develop their own views on the place of formal analysis in system planning and operation.
