Modelling existence of path between (source,destination) pairs

Hello Everyone,


I am modelling a network interdiction problem, where I would need to check existence of a paths between any two (source, destination) pairs. Am using a binary variable which is takes value 1 if nodes u and v are connected, and 0 otherwise.  Where my objective is to maximise the number of node pairs still connected after removal of a certain number of nodes.The connections need not be direct that is path length >=1.

At the moment, I am yet to find a material on representation of paths as against  arcs (direct connections). The example on telecommunications (Routing Telephone calls) is only appropriate for small graphs where is possible to list all possible paths.

Can anyone point me to how to handle in Xpress node pair connections beyond direct arc?

Thanks in anticipation?
