This state-of-the-art survey features papers that were selected after an open call following the International Dagstuhl Seminar on Algorithmic Methods for Railway Optimization held in Dagstuhl Castle, Germany, in June 2004. The second part of the volume constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 4th International Workshop on Algorithmic Methods and Models for Optimization of Railways held in Bergen, Norway, in September 2004.
The volume covers algorithmic methods for analyzing and solving problems arising in railway optimizations, with a special focus on the interplay between railway and other public transportation systems. Beside algorithmics and mathematical optimization, the relevance of formal models and the influence of applications on problem modeling are also considered. In addition, the papers address experimental studies and useful prototype implementations.
The 17 full papers presented here were carefully reviewed and selected from numerous submissions and are organized into topical sections covering network and line planning, timetabling and timetable information, rolling stock and crew scheduling, and real-time operations.
