In the buy-at-bulk $k$-Steiner tree (or rent-or-buy

$k$-Steiner tree) problem we are given a graph $G(V,E)$ with a set

of terminals $T\subseteq V$ including a particular vertex $s$ called

the root, and an integer $k\leq |T|$. There are two cost functions

on the edges of $G$, a buy cost $b:E\longrightarrow ...

We consider the non-uniform multicommodity buy-at-bulk network

design problem. In this problem we are given a graph $G(V,E)$ with

two cost functions on the edges, a buy cost $b:E\longrightarrow \RR^+$ and a rent cost

$r:E\longrightarrow\RR^+$, and a set of source-sink pairs $s_i,t_i\in V$ ($1\leq i\leq \alpha$)

with each pair $i$ ...
