The Leader–Follower Location Model


  • D. Santos-Peñate


  • R. Suárez-Vega


  • P. Dorta-González



This paper summarizes some results for the leader–follower location model on networks in several scenarios. Discretization results are considered and differences derived from the inelastic and elastic demand assumptions, as well as from the customer’s choice rule, are emphasized. Finally, some issues for future lines of investigation are suggested. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007
