A MULTIPLE-MODE TRANSPORTATION NETWORK DESIGN MODEL. VOLUME III. (CHAPTERS 6 AND 7)

The function of the model is the staging of network development. The purpose of this model is essentially to accept information on possible paths of development of the transportation network and then to identify optimal paths for such development. The problem is basically one of finding the optimal path through a network in which the vertices correspond to different states of the transportation system at various future times, and the connecting arcs correspond to possible state changes from one time period to the next. An algorithm for the automatic generation and classification of all possible graphs which might be defined on any given number of vertices. The motivation for this is to provide an exhaustive list of all the distinct network structures of transportation systems which might be used to connect any given number of vertices representing urban areas.
