Transportation Network Design

  • Jonathan F. Bard
Part of the Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications book series (NOIA, volume 30)


One of the first applications of bilevel programming (BLP) centered on the design of transportation networks. This chapter deals with the construction of such a model for use in optimizing the investment in the inter-regional highway network of Tunisia, a developing country in North Africa. It is based on the work of Ben-Ayed et al. [B19].
