THE APPLICATION OF DECOMPOSITION TO TRANSPORTATION NETWORK ANALYSIS

This document reports preliminary results of five potential applications of the decomposition techniques from mathematical programming to transportation network problems. The five application areas are (1) the traffic assignment problem with fixed demands, (2) the traffic assignment problem with elastic demand, (3) the transportation network improvement problem, (4) the optimal staging of transportation investments over time, and (5) the geographic decomposition of the traffic assignment problem. For all five, proposed solution techniques are presented and compared with previous work.
