- Dynamic Traffic Assignment for Electric Vehicles (to appear)
joint work with Tobias Harks and Prashant Palkar
We study dynamic traffic assignment for electrical vehicles addressing the specific challenges such as range limitations and the possibility of battery recharge at predefined charging locations. We pose the dynamic equilibrium problem within the deterministic queueing model of Vickrey and as our main result, we establish the existence of an energy-feasible dynamic equilibrium. We complement our theoretical results by a computational study in which we design a fixed-point algorithm computing energy-feasible dynamic equilibria.

- Machine-Learned Prediction Equilibrium for Dynamic Traffic Assignment (published)
joint work with Tobias Harks, Kostas Kollias and Michael Markl
We study a dynamic traffic assignment model, where agents base their instantaneous routing decisions on real-time delay predictions. We describe a general mathematical model which, in particular, includes the settings leading to IDE und DE. On the theoretical side we show existence of equilibrium solutions under some additional assumptions while on the practical side we implement a machine-learned predictor and compare it to other static predictors.

- A Finite Time Combinatorial Algorithm for Instantaneous Dynamic Equilibrium Flows (published)
joint work with Tobias Harks
We study the computational complexity of Instantaneous Dynamic Equilibria (IDE) and show that a natural extension algorithm needs only finitely many phases to converge leading to the first finite time combinatorial algorithm computing an IDE. We complement this result by several hardness results showing that computing IDE with natural properties is NP-hard.

- The Price of Anarchy for Instantaneous Dynamic Equilibria (published)
joint work with Tobias Harks
We study the price of anarchy (PoA) for Instantaneous Dynamic Equilibria (IDE) and show an upper bound of order O(U⋅τ) for single-sink instances, where U denotes the total inflow volume and τ the sum of edge travel times. We complement this upper bound with a family of instances proving a lower bound of order Ω(U⋅logτ).

- Dynamic Flows with Adaptive Route Choice (published)
joint work with Tobias Harks and Leon Sering
We study dynamic network flows and introduce a notion of instantaneous dynamic equilibrium (IDE) requiring that for any positive inflow into an edge, this edge must lie on a currently shortest path towards the respective sink. We measure current shortest path length by current waiting times in queues plus physical travel times. For single-sink networks we show existence and termination of IDE flows. For multi-sink networks we show existence and give an example for an instance where IDE flows never terminate.
