The Fermat-Weber location problem requires finding a point in ~ N that minimizes the sum of weighted Euclidean distances to m given points. A one-point iterative method was first introduced by Weiszfeld in 1937 to solve this problem. Since then several research articles have been published on the method and generalizations thereof. Global convergence of Weiszfeld's algorithm was proven in a seminal paper by Kuhn in 1973. However, since the m given points are singular points of the iterationâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
