An Overview of Representative Problems in Location Research
We present a survey of over 50 representative problems in location research. Our goal is not to review all variants of different location models or to describe solution results, but rather to provide a broad overview of major location problems that have been studied, indicating briefly how they are formulated and how they relate to one another. We review standard problems such as median, center, and warehouse location problems, as well as less traditional location problems which have emerged in recent years. Our primary focus is on problems for which operations research-type models have been developed. Most of the problems we review have been formulated as optimization problems.
