The classical shortest route problem in networks assumes deterministic arc weights and a utility (or cost) function that is linear over path weights for route evaluation. When the environment is stochastic and the “traveler’s” utility function for travel attributes is nonlinear, we define “optimal paths” that maximize the expected utility. We review the concepts of remporary and ~r~u~e~r prcfcences for ~rn~ring a traveler’s preference for available subpaths. It has been shown before that when… CONTINUE READING
