One sentence summary: We show how to find approximate solutions for arc routing problems using approximation algorithms for the traveling salesman problem.
A very general problem in arc routing is the Capacitated Arc Routing Problem, where we want to route a fleet of vehicles in an in total shortest possible way so to service a given number of streets in...
One sentence summary: We find the spots in time and space in a network that form bottlenecks when routing vehicles from a start to an end point.
