    Abstract

    We consider a new combinatorial optimization problem that combines network design and facility location aspects. Given a graph with two types of customers and two technologies that can be installed on the edges, the objective is to find a minimum cost subtree connecting all customers while the primary customers are served by a primary subtree that is embedded into the secondary subtree. In addition, besides fixed link installation costs, facility opening costs, associated to each node where primary and secondary subtree connect, have to be paid. The problem is called the Two Level Network Design Problem with Transition Facilities (TLNDF).
