Entropy based transportation model: A geometric programming approach
Samanta Bablu, Majumder Kumar Sanat
The entropy model has attached a good deal of attention in transportation analysis, urban and regional planning as well as in other areas. This paper shows the equivalence of entropy maximization models to geometric programs. To provide a better understanding of this entropy based transportation model they are analyzed by geometric programming. Dual mathematical programs and algorithms are also obtained and are supported by an illustrative example. .
Keywords: entropy, primal and dual geometric programming, unconstrained optimization, Lagrange multiplier, sequential minimization
