The Path&Cycle Formulation for the Hotspot Problem in Air Traffic Management

pdf-format:
OASIcs-ATMOS-2018-14.pdf (0.6 MB)


Abstract

The Hotspot Problem in Air Traffic Management consists of optimally rescheduling a set of airplanes that are forecast to occupy an overcrowded region of the airspace, should they follow their original schedule. We first provide a MILP model for the Hotspot Problem using a standard big-M formulation. Then, we present a novel MILP model that gets rid of the big-M coefficients. The new formulation contains only simple combinatorial constraints, corresponding to paths and cycles in an associated disjunctive graph. We report computational results on a set of randomly generated instances. In the experiments, the new formulation consistently outperforms the big-M formulation, both in terms of running times and number of branching nodes.
