Solving the uncapacitated multiple allocation hub location problem by means of a dual-ascent technique

This paper deals with the uncapacitated multiple allocation hub location problem. The dual problem of a four-indexed formulation is considered and a heuristic method, based on a dual-ascent technique, is designed. This heuristic, which is reinforced with several specifical subroutines and does not require any external linear problem solver, is the core tool… CONTINUE READING
