This paper considers this competitive facility location problem in a discrete space. To solve it, the linear programming formulations for the leader and the follower are integrated into an algorithm which, in an iterative process, finds a solution by solving a sequence of these linear problems. We propose a matheuristic procedure that provides solutions for the leader via a kernel search algorithm. Taking into account binary and S-shaped customer choice rules, we present the computational results obtained and compare the exact algorithm with two versions of the kernel search procedure.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/69962||ISSN:||1566-113X||DOI:||10.1007/s11067-019-09472-7||Source:||Networks and Spatial Economics[ISSN 1566-113X]|
