Rejoinder on: Extensive facility location problems on networks: an updated review

  • Justo Puerto
  • Federica Ricca
  • Andrea Scozzari

We are grateful to the discussants of this survey for providing thoughtful comments and interesting suggestions. We are pleased to note that all of them found the survey complete, well structured, and useful to provide a clear overview on the topic of location of extensive facilities on graphs. They also recognized the potential of this article to initiate and encourage further research in this area.

First of all, we thank the discussants for their careful reading that led to fix some technicalities and missing details that improved the quality of the original manuscript. On top of that, we would like to comment on some specific remarks and suggestions raised in the discussion.

Wang pointed out some improved complexity results related to the p-core problem, \(p\ge 2\)
