Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The article is intended to fill the recent review of Ortiz-Astorquiza, C. at al. (2017) on multi-level facility location problem (MLFLP). The article presents the results of some publications, information about which is missing in this review. We are talking about the construction of polynomial exact algorithms for solving some subclasses of the network MLFLP. Namely, the design of polynomial time algorithms for the multi-level FLP on a chain graph and the two-level FLP on a tree graph are discussed. We also show that the a known result of Trubin V. A. and Sharifov F.A. (1992) for the general multi-level FLP on a tree is incorrect.
