In science:

Various formulations of the network interdiction problem have existed for many decades now.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
Interdiction of an edge at index i, j is represented by setting ri j = 1 and ri j = 0 if the edge is not interdicted.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
In general some edges are more suitable for interdiction than others.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
For brevity, we will not discuss node interdiction further except in the proofs of Sec. 3 where we consider both cases.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
If edge (i, j) has been interdicted (ri j = 1) and the evader traverses it then the evader will not reach j with probability di j .
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
This de fines an interdicted version of the M matrix, the matrix ˆM.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
The simplest formulation is the case when interdicting an edge has a unit cost with a fixed budget B and F are all subsets of the edge set E of size at most B.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
For example interdiction could be viewed as redirection of the evader into a special absorbing state - a “jail node ”.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
Since ˆM is just a mathematical device it is not even necessary for “interdiction ” to change the physi cal traffic on the network.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
This section proves technical results about the interdiction problem (7) including the equivalence in complexity of node and edge interdiction and the NP-hardness of node interdiction (and therefore of edge interdiction).
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
Instance: A graph G(N , E ), interdiction efficiencies 0 ≤ di ≤ 1 for each i ∈ N , budget B ≥ 0, and real r ≥ 0; a set K of evaders, such that for each k ∈ K there is a matrix M(k) on G, a sources-target pair (a(k) , t (k) ) and a weight w(k) .
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
The decision problem is stated for node interdiction but the complexity is the same for edge interdiction, as proved next.
Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders

Optimal Interdiction of Unreactive Markovian Evaders
