"Recent Advances in Dynamic Network Equilibrium Modeling for Intelligent Transportation Systems"

Dynamic Network Equilibrium provides a governing framework for the analysis and design of transportation networks especially in the context of real time operations. There are three main challenges in dynamic network equilibrium problems: (i) the appropriate traffic flow modeling; (ii) the development of properties for dynamic equilibrium and (iii) the computation of dynamic equilibrium.

In this talk, I will focus on three main issues related to dynamic equilibrium at its applications to intelligent transportation systems. I will:

(1) Present specific traffic flow models which can be used to model dynamic equilibrium and discuss the notion of price of anarchy for different models.

(2) Discuss recent work on formulating the network wide dynamic equilibrium model using complementarity theory with an embedded traffic flow model.

(3) Present open questions in this area of interest to the computer science community.

Numerical results and computational issues will also be discussed towards the end of the talk.

Satish Ukkusuri is an Associate Professor in the School of Civil Engineering at Purdue University. Previously he was an Assistant Professor and the Blitman Endowed Chair Professor at Rensselear Polytechnic Institute. Dr. Ukkusuri leads the transportation network mobility research group at Purdue that focuses on interdisciplinary work in real-time traffic networks and telematics, freight transportation and logistics, disaster management and stochastic traffic network optimization and simulation. Dr. Ukkusuri is the Area Editor of Networks and Spatial Economics, Overview Paper Editor of Transportation Research Part-C and the Chair of the ITS SIG at INFORMS. He has received numerous awards in transportation, most recently, the Council of University Transportation Centers New Faculty Award for outstanding research and leadership. His research has been funded in the last few years by five NSF awards and New York, New Jersey, New York City, Indiana and U.S. departments of transportation.
