Max-Min Fair Optimization Models in Network Design

Pioro, Michal LU (2012) Eleventh INFORMS Telecommunications Conference
Abstract
Max-min fairness (MMF) is a general objective of multi-criteria optimization with important and natural

applications in communication network design. The notion of MMF and optimization models involving MMF

seem not to be commonly known to network designers and therefore they are not used to an extent they deserve.

Moreover, the MMF approaches are sometimes “reinvented”, in some cases not correctly.

The presentation discusses basic notions related to MMF, and surveys general algorithms for resolving

optimization problems with an MMF objective, illustrated by examples from network design. The presentation

may help network designers to more commonly apply MMF objectives in their network... (More)
