Optimal Reconfiguration with Variant Transmission Times on Network

Contraflow means lane reversals on networks. In lane reversal reconfiguration, the capacity of arc increases by reorienting arcs towards demand nodes, which maximizes the flow value and reduces the travel time. In this work, we survey the existing pieces of literature on single and multi-commodity contraflow problems with symmetric and asymmetric travel times on parallel … Read more

Freight-on-Transit for urban last-mile deliveries: A Strategic Planning Approach

We study a delivery strategy for last-mile deliveries in urban areas which combines freight transportation with mass mobility systems with the goal of creating synergies contrasting negative externalities caused by transportation. The idea is to use the residual capacity on public transport means for moving freights within the city. In particular, the system is such … Read more

Priority Based Flow Improvement with Intermediate Storage

Every models in the network flow theory aim to increase flow value from the sources to the sinks and reduce time or cost satisfying the capacity and flow conservation constraints. Recently, the network flow model without flow conservation constraints at the intermediate nodes has been investigated by Pyakurel and Dempe \cite{pyadem:2019}. In this model, if … Read more

Distributed Optimization With Local Domain: Applications in MPC and Network Flows

In this paper we consider a network with P nodes, where each node has exclusive access to a local cost function. Our contribution is a communication-efficient distributed algorithm that finds a vector x* minimizing the sum of all the functions. We make the additional assumption that the functions have intersecting local domains, i.e., each function … Read more
