Abstract : This paper continues our work on perturbation analysis of multimodal transportation networks (TNs) by means of a stochastic hybrid automaton (SHA) model. We focus here on the approximate computation , in particular on the major bottleneck consisting in the high dimensionality of systems of stochastic differential balance equations (SDEs) that define the continuous passenger-flow dynamics in the different modes of the SHA model. In fact, for every pair of a mode and a station, one system of coupled SDEs relates the passenger loads of all discrete points such as platforms considered in this station, and all vehicles docked to it, to the passenger flows in between. In general, such an SDE system has many dimensions, which makes its numerical computation and thus the approximate computation of the SHA model intractable. We show how these systems can be canonically replaced by lower-dimensional ones, by decoupling the passenger flows inside every mode from one another. We prove that the resulting approximating passenger-flow dynamics converges to the original one, if the replacing set of balance equations set up for all decoupled passenger flows communicate their results among each other in vanishing time intervals.
