A Cut-based Heuristic to Produce Almost Feasible Periodic Railway Timetables

Preprint-Reihe des Instituts für Mathematik, Technische Universität Berlin

We consider the problem of satisfying the maximum number of constraints of an instance of the Periodic Event Scheduling Problem (PESP). This is a key issue in periodic railway timetable construction, and has many other applications, e.g. for traffic light scheduling.
