Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This paper describes a new origin-based solution method for the static user-equilibrium traffic assignment problem. The implications of route flow entropy maximization are studied in the context of origin-based solutions. An alternative intuitive assumption is proposed, and the equivalence between the proposed assumption and the entropy maximization criterion is examined. As a result, a natural, easily obtainable route flow interpretation for origin-based solutions is derived.
