Chapter 11 -- Route Computation and Path Selection
In addition to covering route computation this chapter also illustrates network optimization. In particular, we show how optical network optimization can be formulated as a multi-commodity flow problem. We then illustrate this with a few examples. Since these problems, when formulated, consist of a great number of equations, equation generating languages such as AMPL are used. The model code for the example in the book and the data for the examples in the book are available in the files below:
