Controlling road traffic networks is a complex problem. One of the difficulties is the coordination of actuators, such as traffic lights, variables speed limits, ramp metering and route guidance, with the aim to improve the network performance over a near-future time horizon. This dissertation develops algorithms that specifically balance fast computation time and improved traffic network performance; both for freeway traffic in part I, and for urban traffic in part II.
