A deterministic algorithm for solving the Weber problem for an n-sequentially connected chain
The class of n-sequentially connected chains is introduced. Here is set an algorithm based on dynamic programming which reasonably solves the Weber problem for an n-sequentially connected chain and a finite set of location positions. The analysis of the proposed algorithm is given. On a set of problem cases which was randomly generated, the comparison of action period of the given algorithm and a model of integer linear programming was carried out in IBM ILOG CPLEX.
