Cost-Sharing Mechanisms for Ride-Sharing
The cost-sharing problem has largely been neglected in the literature. In this webinar, Dr. Maged M. Dessouky will identify the desirable properties of a good cost-sharing mechanism and propose specific mechanisms for the static scenario where all information for the passengers is known in advance. Dr. Dessouky will also analyze their advantages and disadvantages so that transportation planners can select mechanisms according to their different needs.
Maged M. Dessouky is Dean's Professor & Chair of the USC Epstein Department of Industrial Systems Engineering. His research focus is transportation system optimization with over 100 refereed publications. His paper “Optimal Slack Time for Schedule Based Transit Operations” received the INFORMS Transportation Science and Logistics Best Paper Prize.
