Delay-Robust Routes in Temporal Graphs

Abstract

Most transportation networks are inherently temporal: Connections (e.g. flights, train runs) are only available at certain, scheduled times. When transporting passengers or commodities, this fact must be considered for the the planning of itineraries. This has already led to several well-studied algorithmic problems on temporal graphs. The difficulty of the described task is increased by the fact that connections are often unreliable - in particular, many modes of transportation suffer from occasional delays. If these delays cause subsequent connections to be missed, the consequences can be severe. Thus, it is a vital problem to design itineraries that are robust to (small) delays. We initiate the study of this problem from a parameterized complexity perspective by proving its NP-completeness as well as several hardness and tractability results for natural parameterizations.
