Within a spatial competitive framework decision makers of services face
the question what is the optimal point in time to open or close a facility
location under probabilistic demand? Although this question has a long
term tradition in human geography it is still difficult to answer since
demand is usually not monotonic and often there are spatial substitution
patterns between facilities. This book presents a location planning
approach which considers the availability of service locations to
customers and the allocation of demand according to utility-maximization
and substitution patterns.
