Abstract

This article summarizes the findings of my Ph.D. thesis finished in 2015, whose topic are algorithmic approaches for the solution of network design problems. I focus on the results of a joint project with Deutsche Bahn AG on developing an optimal expansion strategy for the German railway network until 2030 to meet future demands. I have modelled this task as a multi-period network design problem and have derived an efficient decomposition approach to solve it. In a case study on real-world data on the German railway network, I demonstrate both the efficiency of by method as well as the high quality of the solutions it computes.
