ASYMMETRIC PROBLEMS AND STOCHASTIC PROCESS MODELS OF TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT

Traffic assignment is concerned with predicting an average flow for each link in a road network, given rules about the way in which drivers select a route. The demand-side data are given in the form of an origin-destination (OD) matrix, representing the average interzonal demand for travel during, say, a peak period. The supply-side data are specified in terms of a set of link travel time functions, which give the average link travel times when the link flows are at a given level. Drivers are assumed to make their route choice based on the generalized travel cost, typically a linear combination of travel time and flow-independent attributes.
