A Reduction Result for Planar Location Problems with Polygonal Barriers

  • In this paper we consider the problem of locating one new facility in the plane with respect to a given set of existing facility where a set of polygonal barriers restricts traveling. This non-convex optimization problem can be reduced to a finite set of convex subproblems if the objective function is a convex function of the travel distances between the new and the existing facilities (like e.g. the Median and Center objective functions). An exact Algorithm and a heuristic solution procedure based on this reduction result are developed.
