BRAESS' PHENOMENON IN THE MANAGEMENT OF NETWORKS AND DISSOCIATION OF EQUILIBRIUM CONCEPTS

This paper has revisited the phenomenon known as Braess' Paradox. The concept of network design has been extended to embody time or space allocation or information distribution in a network. The new problems may be called network management problems (NMPs) where substantial user benefit accrues by a proper allocation of the above resources, without appreciably changing the cost of operating the network. A special case of time allocation NMP has been chosen, wherein a traffic signal allocates time to different approaches of traffic. An improvement is sought through investment in traffic sensitive signaling.
