By Christian Liebchen, Rolf H. Möhring (auth.), Frank Geraets, Leo Kroon, Anita Schoebel, Dorothea Wagner, Christos D. Zaroliagis (eds.)

This cutting-edge survey gains papers that have been chosen after an open name following the overseas Dagstuhl Seminar on Algorithmic tools for Railway Optimization held in Dagstuhl fortress, Germany, in June 2004. the second one a part of the amount constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the 4th overseas Workshop on Algorithmic tools and types for Optimization of Railways held in Bergen, Norway, in September 2004.

The quantity covers algorithmic tools for reading and fixing difficulties bobbing up in railway optimizations, with a different concentrate on the interaction among railway and different public transportation platforms. Beside algorithmics and mathematical optimization, the relevance of formal versions and the impression of purposes on challenge modeling also are thought of. furthermore, the papers handle experimental reports and helpful prototype implementations.

The 17 complete papers awarded right here have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from a variety of submissions and are geared up into topical sections protecting community and line making plans, timetabling and timetable details, rolling inventory and team scheduling, and real-time operations.

With this notation, we have πai+1 − πai ≥ d, for all i = 2, . . , n. By the definition of πan+1 , we know that n (πai+1 − πai ) = πan+1 − πa1 = T. i=1 Summing up the lower bounds yields T ≥ (n + 1)d − h, which contradicts the hypothesis of Theorem 3. Corollary 1. If h < (n+1)d−T , then every timetable which respects constraints (11) to (14) is an alternating timetable. In Figure 16, we provide an example for the easiest case, namely matching two lines. As usual, we assume the period time to be 60 minutes.

Therefore, their approach must also consider possible constellations in which there is no feasible timetable using only six trains for the southern line. This would be the case, if there was a single track with travel time 25 minutes for every direction just at the end of the south-east segment. The same holds if it is required that the two lines together form an exact half-hourly service along the backbone of the network. We consider a track that has to be served in the same direction by n directed lines which are operated by trains of identical type.

60 A timetable which lets the trains leave at the full hour from Frankfurt and Amsterdam can indeed be operated with only 10 trains, at least if the stopping times are extended only moderately. On the contrary, a timetable in which only the trains starting at Frankfurt depart at minute 00, but the trains from Amsterdam leave at minute 30 requires at least 11 vehicles. Hence, the amount of vehicles depends on the timetable. 28 C. H. M¨ ohring We will analyze in which special cases pure PESP constraints are able to control the number of trains required.
