The attraction function depends on both the distance between customers and facilities, and the characteristics (quality) of the facilities. Customers at each node impose a minimum level of attraction in order to patronise a facility and then they share their buying power among the facilities that pass this threshold. The amount of demand captured by each of these facilities is proportional to the attraction perceived by the customers. In this case, a discretisation of this network problem is proved.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/47426||ISSN:||1056-8190||DOI:||10.1111/j.1435-5957.2007.00104.x||Source:||Papers in Regional Science[ISSN 1056-8190],v. 86, p. 123-137|
