2 On the Multicommodity Flow Problem O-D version K origin-destination pairs of nodes (s 1 , t 1 ), (s 2 , t 2 ), …, (s K , t K ) Network G = (N, A) d k = amount of flow that must be sent from s k to t k . u ij = capacity on (i,j) shared by all commodities k ij c = cost of sending 1 unit of commodity k in (i,j) k ij x = flow of commodity k in (i,j)

6 Assumptions (for now) Homogeneous goods. Each unit flow of commodity k on (i,j) uses up one unit of capacity on (i,j). No congestion. Cost is linear in the flow on (i,j) until capacity is totally used up. Fractional flows . Flows are permitted to be fractional. OD pairs . Usually a commodity has a single origin and single destination.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
