Flow Networks

Repairable flow networks are a new area of research, which analyzes the repair and flow disruption caused by failures of components in static flow networks. This book addresses a gap in current network research by developing the theory, algorithms and applications related to repairable flow networks and networks with disturbed flows. The theoretical results presented in the book lay the foundations of a new generation of ultra-fast algorithms for optimizing the flow in networks after failures or congestion, and the high computational speed creates the powerful possibility of optimal control of very large and complex networks in real time. Furthermore, the possibility for re-optimizing the network flows in real time increases significantly the yield from real production networks and reduces to a minimum the flow disruption caused by failures. The potential application of repairable flow networks reaches across many large and complex systems, including active power networks, telecommunication networks, oil and gas production networks, transportation networks, water supply networks, emergency evacuation networks, and supply networks. The book reveals a fundamental flaw in classical algorithms for maximising the throughput flow in networks, published since the creation of the theory of flow networks in 1956. Despite the years of intensive research, the classical algorithms for maximising the throughput flow leave highly undesirable directed loops of flow in the optimised networks. These flow loops are associated with wastage of energy and resources and increased levels of congestion in the optimised networks. Includes theory and practical examples to build a deep understanding of the issues Written by the leading scholar and researcher in this emerging field Features powerful software tools for analysis, optimization and control of repairable flow networks

ABSTRACT: This article focuses on the problem of interdicting layered networks that involve a physical flow network and an information flow network. There exist dependencies between these networks since components of the physical flow network are only operational should their counterparts in the information flow network receive enough demand. This leads to a network interdiction problem over these layered networks. The objective of the defender is to send the maximum amount of flow through its physical flow network. The objective

A maximum flow network is defined by a set of arcs and a set of points called nodes. Each arc joins two nodes and has associated with it a positive capacity which represents the maximum amount of flow that may pass over it. One of the nodes is designated as the source and another as the sink. From these nodes, arcs, and capacities the maximum amount of flow that may pass from source to sink may be calculated. This investigation

Flow networks consist of individual units called nodes connected by edges transporting flows of some quantity - such as electricity, water or cars. Each of us encounters more than one flow network every day. They form the backbone of much of our technical infrastructure, such as road networks and the electrical power grid. They also enable many biological transport processes, such as venation networks in plant leaves and trachea networks in animal lungs. To perform well, such networks need to

Traffic flow has been a continuous source of challenging mathematical problems. The following work is dedicated to recent questions in modeling, simulation and optimization of traffic flow networks. Mathematics can help to solve traffic problems in different ways. Modelling provides fundamental understanding of traffic dynamics and behaviour. Optimization yields solutions for complex situations and helps to organize traffic flow. During the last decade there has been intensive research in different fields of and related to traffic flow. One of the

In network design, the gap between theory and practice is woefully broad. This book narrows it, comprehensively and critically examining current network design models and methods. You will learn where mathematical modeling and algorithmic optimization have been under-utilized. At the opposite extreme, you will learn where they tend to fail to contribute to the twin goals of network efficiency and cost-savings. Most of all, you will learn precisely how to tailor theoretical models to make them as useful as possible
