    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    This paper presents a new concept of partial coverage distance, where demand points within a given threshold distance of a new facility are covered in the traditional sense, while non-covered demand points are penalized an amount proportional to their distance to the covered region. Two single facility location models, based on the minisum and minimax criteria, are formulated with the new distance function, and the structure of the models is analysed.
