Publication# An algorithm for the recovery of disrupted airline schedules

Abstract

We consider the recovery of an airline schedule after an unpredicted event, commonly called disruption, that makes the planned schedule unfeasible. In particular we consider the aircraft recovery problem for a heterogeneous fleet of aircrafts, made of regular and reserve planes, where the maintenance constraints are explicitly taken into account and different maintenance constraints can be imposed. The aim is to find the optimal combination of routes within a given time horizon for each plane in order to recover to the initial schedule, given the initial schedule and the disrupted state of the planes. We present the main methodological ideas and numerical results illustrating the relevance of the method.

Euler method

In mathematics and computational science, the Euler method (also called the forward Euler method) is a first-order numerical procedure for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with a given initial value. It is the most basic explicit method for numerical integration of ordinary differential equations and is the simplest Runge–Kutta method. The Euler method is named after Leonhard Euler, who first proposed it in his book Institutionum calculi integralis (published 1768–1870).

Iterative method

In computational mathematics, an iterative method is a mathematical procedure that uses an initial value to generate a sequence of improving approximate solutions for a class of problems, in which the n-th approximation is derived from the previous ones. A specific implementation with termination criteria for a given iterative method like gradient descent, hill climbing, Newton's method, or quasi-Newton methods like BFGS, is an algorithm of the iterative method.

Heun's method

In mathematics and computational science, Heun's method may refer to the improved or modified Euler's method (that is, the explicit trapezoidal rule), or a similar two-stage Runge–Kutta method. It is named after Karl Heun and is a numerical procedure for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with a given initial value. Both variants can be seen as extensions of the Euler method into two-stage second-order Runge–Kutta methods.
