2 AGENDA Synonyms Definition Historical Background Scientific Fundamentals Key Applications Future Direction & References

3 SYNONYMS CCNVD – None Voronoi Diagram - Voronoi tessellation, a Voronoi decomposition, a Voronoi partition, or a Dirichlet tessellation

4 FORMAL DEFINITION Capacity Constrained Network Voronoi Diagram (CCNVD): Partitions graph into set of contiguous service areas that honor service center capacities and minimize the sum of distances from graph-nodes allotted service centers.

5 SIGNIFICANCE & APPLICATIONS Critical Societal applications Examples: Assigning consumers to gas stations in the aftermath of a disaster Assigning evacuees to shelters Assigning patients to hospitals Assigning students to school districts CCNVD Finite Spaces Continuous Spaces

6 PROBLEM STATEMENT Input: A transportation network G – (Nodes N, Edges E) Set of service centers Constraints on the service centers Real weights on the edges. Objective: Minimize the sum of distances from graph-nodes to their allotted service centers while satisfying the constraints of the network. Constraints: Nodes - Assumed to be contiguous The effective paths can be calculated (maximum coverage and shortest paths) Output: Capacity Constrained Network Voronoi Diagram (CCNVD)

7 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND Voronoi Diagram: Way of dividing space into a number of regions A set of points (called seeds, sites, or generators) is specified beforehand For each seed, there will be a corresponding region consisting of all points closer to that seed than to any othercloser Regions are called Voronoi cells

8 RELATED WORK Minimizing sum of distances between graph nodes and their allotted service centers Honoring service center capacity constraints Service Area Contiguity Min-cost flow approaches Network Voronoi Diagrams (NVD) CCNVD


10 RELATED WORK ILLUSTRATION WITH DIAGRAMS Min-Cost Flow without SA contiguity (min-sum=30)(Output) CCNVD (min-sum=30) (Output) – Pressure Equalizer Approach

11 CHALLENGES Large size of the transportation network Uneven distribution - Service centers & Customers Constraint: Service areas must be contiguous in graph to simplify communication of allotments NP Hard

12 FUTURE DIRECTION More factors of the problem into account Factors related to capacity of service centers, Example: Number and distance of neighboring nodes Service quality of the service center. Factors related to weight of each node Number of consumers The level of importance
