## On the Diameter of Polyhedra Associated with Network Optimization

ABSTRACT
**

Investigations of the diameter of convex polyhedra are motivated by a
n effort to
understand the complexity of polyhedral edge-following algorithms such as
the simplex method.
Such studies are especially relevant for many network optimization
problems since the simplex
method is often used when solving these problems. In this paper a survey
is given on the
diameter of the polyhedra that arise in well known network optimization
problems.

Paper only.
