Solving nonadditive traffic assignment problems: A self-adaptive projection-auxiliary problem method for variational inequalities

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In the last decade, as calibrations of the classical traffic equilibrium problems, various models of traffic equilibrium problems with nonadditive route costs have been proposed. For solving such models, this paper develops a self-adaptive projection-auxiliary problem method for monotone variational inequality (VI) problems. It first converts the original problem where the feasible set is the intersection of a linear manifold and a simple set to an augmented VI with simple set, which makes the projection easy to implement. The self-adaptive strategy avoids the difficult task of choosing `suitable' parameters, and leads to fast convergence. Under suitable conditions, we prove the global convergence of the method. Some preliminary computational results are presented to illustrate the ability and efficiency of the method.
