Maintenance of Multi-level Overlay Graphs for Timetable Queries
In railways systems the timetable is typically represented as a weighted digraph on which itinerary queries are answered by shortest path algorithms, usually running Dijkstra’s algorithm. Due to the continuously growing size of real-world graphs, there is a constant need for faster algorithms and many techniques have been devised to heuristically speed up Dijkstra’s algorithm. One of these techniques is the multi-level overlay graph, that has been recently introduced and shown to be experimentally efficient, especially when applied to timetable information. In many practical application major disruptions to the normal operation cannot be completely avoided because of the complexity of the underlying systems. Timetable information update after disruptions is considered one of the weakest points in current railway systems. This determines the need for an effective online redesign and update of the shortest paths information as a consequence of disruptions. In this paper, we make a s...
