AN INVESTMENT POLICY TO REDUCE THE TRAVEL TIME IN A TRANSPORTATION NETWORK

THE PROBLEMS OF ECONOMIC INVESTMENT IN A TRANSPORTATION NETWORK ARE CONSIDERED. THE NETWORK IS REPRESENTED BY AN ABSTRACT GRAPH OF NODES AND ARCS ON WHICH ARE DEFINED REAL- VALUED VARIABLES AND FUNCTIONS TO REPRESENT TRAVEL TIMES, TRAFFIC FLOWS AND MONEY INVESTED. THE TRAVEL TIME ON AN ARC IS ASSUMED TO BE A KNOWN FUNCTION OF INVESTMENT, AND THE ASSIGNMENT OF TRAFFIC FLOW ON A ROUTE VARIES WITH THE TRAVEL TIME ON THE ARCS. AN OPTIMAL SET OF ARCS IS SOUGHT SUCH THAT INVESTMENT IN THESE ARCS GIVES MINIMUM TRAVEL TIME. /AUTHOR/
