Equilibrium in Time Dependent Traffic Networks with Delay

  • Fabio Raciti
Part of the Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications book series (NOIA, volume 58)


We propose a new model of time dependent traffic networks which include delay effects. Starting from the new definition of “ retarded equilibrium ” we cast the problem in the framework of variational inequalities and give sufficient conditions for the existence of retarded equilibria.
