This paper describes methods for calculating the most likely values of link flows in networks with incomplete data. The object is to present a thorough and rigorous treatment of maximum entropy flow estimation methods and to develop a methodological framework capable of handling different types of network problems. A multiple probability space conditional entropy approach is described for the general network problem. Results are presented and discussed for an example network intended for water supply.
