title = "Multiple facility location on a network with linear reliability order of edges",

abstract = "We study the problem of locating facilities on the nodes of a network to maximize the expected demand serviced. The edges of the input graph are subject to random failure due to a disruptive event. We consider a special type of failure correlation. The edge dependency model assumes that the failure of a more reliable edge implies the failure of all less reliable ones. Under this dependency model called Linear Reliability Order (LRO) we give two polynomial time exact algorithms. When two distinct LRO{\textquoteright}s exist, we prove the total unimodularity of a linear programming formulation. In addition, we show that minimizing the sum of facility opening costs and expected cost of unserviced demand under two orderings reduces to a matching problem. We prove NP-hardness of the three orderings case and show that the problem with an arbitrary number of orderings generalizes the deterministic maximum coverage problem. When a demand point can be covered only if a facility exists within a distance limit, we show that the problem is NP-hard even for a single ordering.",
