The MATSim Book is the official reference and user documentation for MATSim.
The book is divided into four parts, covering a broad range of topics on more than 600 pages:
- Part I is an introduction on how to use MATSim, using only the functionality that MATSim brings out-of-the-box.
- Part II first explains the different data sets needed to run MATSim, and then introduces a number of extensions which add additional functionality to MATSim.
- Part III provides a lot of insight into the theoretical background of MATSim.
- Part IV finally presents over 40 use cases from around the world where MATSim was or still is used.
Since the book keeps getting older, every year along with the MATSim class at TU Berlin we update the most important chapters, make them available here, and call it the User Guide.
The full book remains at the status of 2016.
