Publication# Scalable Computation of Dynamic Flow Problems via Multimarginal Graph-Structured Optimal Transport

Abstract

In this work, we develop a new framework for dynamic network flow pro-blems based on optimal transport theory. We show that the dynamic multicommodity minimum-cost network flow problem can be formulated as a multimarginal optimal transport problem, where the cost function and the constraints on the marginals are asso-ciated with a graph structure. By exploiting these structures and building on recent advances in optimal transport theory, we develop an efficient method for such entropy -regularized optimal transport problems. In particular, the graph structure is utilized to efficiently compute the projections needed in the corresponding Sinkhorn iterations, and we arrive at a scheme that is both highly computationally efficient and easy to implement. To illustrate the performance of our algorithm, we compare it with a state-of-the-art linear programming (LP) solver. We achieve good approximations to the solution at least one order of magnitude faster than the LP solver. Finally, we showcase the methodology on a traffic routing problem with a large number of commodities.

In mathematics, graph theory is the study of graphs, which are mathematical structures used to model pairwise relations between objects. A graph in this context is made up of vertices (also called nodes or points) which are connected by edges (also called links or lines). A distinction is made between undirected graphs, where edges link two vertices symmetrically, and directed graphs, where edges link two vertices asymmetrically. Graphs are one of the principal objects of study in discrete mathematics.

In computer science, a graph is an abstract data type that is meant to implement the undirected graph and directed graph concepts from the field of graph theory within mathematics. A graph data structure consists of a finite (and possibly mutable) set of vertices (also called nodes or points), together with a set of unordered pairs of these vertices for an undirected graph or a set of ordered pairs for a directed graph. These pairs are known as edges (also called links or lines), and for a directed graph are also known as edges but also sometimes arrows or arcs.

Computational science, also known as scientific computing, technical computing or scientific computation (SC), is a division of science that uses advanced computing capabilities to understand and solve complex physical problems. This includes Algorithms (numerical and non-numerical): mathematical models, computational models, and computer simulations developed to solve sciences (e.

In this paper, we study the problem of learning Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) with Differential Privacy (DP). We propose a novel differentially private GNN based on Aggregation Perturbation (GAP), which adds stochastic noise to the GNN's aggregation functio ...
