Origin-based Network Assignment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Most solution methods for the traffic assignment problem can be categorized as either link-based or route-based. Only a few attempts have followed the intermediate, origin-base dapproach. This paper describes the main concepts of a new, origin-based method for the static user equilibrium traffic assignment problem. Computational efficiency in time and memory makes this method suitable for large-scale networks of practical interest. Experimental results show that the new method is especially efficient in finding highly accurate solutions.
