The maximal value of d(k,t,S) over the schedule horizon [T} , T2 ] is designated D(k, S) . Let t's and t'e denote the start and end times of trip i, i e S . It is possible to partition the schedule horizon of d(k,t,S) into sequence of alternating hollow and maximal intervals. ,n(k) define the interval of time over which d(k,i} takes on its maximum value. Note that the S will be deleted when it is clear which underlying schedule is being considered. Index / represents the z'th maximal intervals from the left and n(k) represents the total number of maximal intervals in d(k,t}.
