Graph Theory Approach to Transportation Systems Design and Optimization
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: The main aim of the paper is to present graph theory parameters and algorithms as tool to analyze and to optimise transportation systems. To realize these goals the 0-1 knapsack problem solution by SPEA algorithm, methods and procedures for finding the minimal spanning tree in graphs and digraphs, domination parameters problems accurate to analyse the transportation systems are introduced and described. Possibility of application of graph theory algorithms and parameters to analyze exemplary transportation system are shown.
