Abstract: Location theory is one of the major tools of mathematical optimization and
operations research to model real-world problems. Often, however, the
respective problem involves not only the locational part, but other parts
requiring the input of additional models.
In this talk, we will show, how this situation can be dealt with if the
additional models are coming from network flow and scheduling theory,
respectively. This talk will summarize our current knowledge on two
corresponding integrating theories, which we coined FlowLoc and ScheLoc,
respectively. It is a result of joint work with Dwi Poetranto-Gross
(FowLoc) and Marcel Kalsch and Donatas Elvikis (ScheLoc).
