Abstract : A nonlinear integer programming model for expanding the transportation system of an underdeveloped country is presented. The model uses integer O-1 decision variables. The basic model has linear constraints and a nonlinear objective function. Some special situations and extensions to the model are presented. The benefits being maximized in the objective function are discussed, as are the problems of parameterization and suboptimization. A solution procedure for the model is suggested, but an efficient algorithm is not available for solving the model. Some areas for future research are also suggested. (Author)
