Balancing preferential access and fairness with an application to waste management: mathematical models, optimality conditions, and heuristics

Typically, within facility location problems, fairness is defined in terms of accessibility of users. However, for facilities perceived as undesirable by communities hosting them, fairness between the usage of facilities becomes especially important. Limited research exists on this notion of fairness. To close this gap, we develop an optimization framework for the allocation of populations … Read more
