On an instance of the inverse shortest paths problem. (English) Zbl 0756.90089
Summary: The inverse shortest paths problem in a graph is considered, that is, the problem of recovering the arc costs given some information about the shortest paths in the graph. The problem is first motivated by some practical examples arising from applications. An algorithm based on the Goldfarb-Idnani method for convex quadratic programming is then proposed and analyzed for one of the instances of the problem. Preliminary numerical results are reported.
