Fair Resource Allocation in Multi-commodity Networks
The problem of fair resource allocation is of considerable importance in many applications. In this paper multiple commodity network flow combined with with Ordered Weighted Averaging (OWA) aggregation operators and extensions is considered. The approach allows modeling various preferences with regard to flow distribution in a consistent and fairness–preserving way. It is shown that in this case OWA–based aggregation operators can be utilized just as easily as traditional lexicographic operators.
