  title={Path-matching problems},
  author={Sun Wu and Udi Manber},
The notion of matching in graphs is generalized in this paper to a set of paths rather than to a set of edges. The generalized problem, which we call thepath-matching problem, is to pair the vertices of an undirected weighted graph such that the paths connecting each pair are subject to certain objectives and/or constraints. This paper concentrates on the case where the paths are required to be edge-disjoint and the objective is to minimize the maximal cost of a path in the matching (i.e., the… CONTINUE READING
