Description: We model the problem of finding minimum-delay routes through the U.S. flight network as a shortest paths problem with stochastic costs. Our approach utilizes statistical modeling, Monte Carlo simulation, and network optimization techniques. Our models and simulations are based on data obtained from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Our sampling techniques allow us to model the time dependence of arc costs.
