This package is provided as a companion to the papers
Transport policies in polycentric cities, by
Q. David et M. Kilani, 2019.
The package is composed of two executables :
- scbd : fixed frequencies
- f_scbd : endogenous frequencies
The optimization step relies on the packages BOBYQA
and COBYLA written by Pr. Powell (the double precision
versions are used).
The file "scbd.dat" is read for model parameters.
The source code is located in the "src" subdirectory.
The subroutines are separated into several files.
The EQUILIBRIUM subroutine is central since it is the
one where the network equilibrium is computed.
INSTALLATION (unix like systems)
0. For a unix-like system (for Windows
the process should be similar)
We assume that gfortran (or an equivalent)
1. Unzip the file "scbd.zip"
2. Change to the directory root of that uncompressed folder.
3. Type "make" (gfortran should be installed)
"scbd" and "f_scbd" executables are produced
4. Edit "scbd.dat" file and save
5. Type "./scbd"
The output is written to the screen.
Standard redirection can be used to save output
For some parameter values the obtained output may not
be optimal because the trust region search is
not convenient. In case of doubt, it is preferable to
change the values of parameters "RHOBEG" and "RHOEND"
and check for robustness. Too small values may miss the
exploration of the optimal region and values that are
too large are likely to yield instability and non
convergence. The given values should work well
if the values of the model parameters are are not
changed so much.
