This book aims to provide a comprehensive overview of facility location models that can be investigated in a game theoretical environment. Facility location theory develops the idea of locating one or more facilites optimizing suitable criteria such as minimizing transportation cost, capturing the largest market share, etc.. and a huge number of papers have been devoted to this reaserch. In this volume we focus on situations where the location decision is faced by several decision makers, leading to a game theoretical framework in a noncooperative way, as well as in a cooperative one. Some chapters are surveys of models and methods regarding this part of the facility location using game theory, other chapters illustrate applications in dierent contexts such as economics, engineering, physics, etc. This makes the book useful for a broader audience of researchers working on theory, applications and computational aspects. We would like to express our thanks to all the contributors of chapters and also the evaluable assistance of the Springer sta for the publication of this book.

Abstract

This book aims to provide a comprehensive overview of facility location models that can be investigated in a game theoretical environment. Facility location theory develops the idea of locating one or more facilites optimizing suitable criteria such as minimizing transportation cost, capturing the largest market share, etc.. and a huge number of papers have been devoted to this reaserch. In this volume we focus on situations where the location decision is faced by several decision makers, leading to a game theoretical framework in a noncooperative way, as well as in a cooperative one. Some chapters are surveys of models and methods regarding this part of the facility location using game theory, other chapters illustrate applications in dierent contexts such as economics, engineering, physics, etc. This makes the book useful for a broader audience of researchers working on theory, applications and computational aspects. We would like to express our thanks to all the contributors of chapters and also the evaluable assistance of the Springer sta for the publication of this book.
