    Description: In the context of recreational routing, the problem of finding a route which starts and ends in the same location (while achieving a length between specified upper and lower boundaries) is a common task, especially for tourists or cyclists who want to exercise. The topic of finding a tour between a specified starting and ending location while minimizing one or multiple criteria is well covered in literature. In contrast to this, the route planning task in which a pleasant tour with length between a maximum and a minimum boundary needs to be found is relatively underexplored. In this paper, we provide a formal definition of this problem, taking into account the existing literature on which route attributes influence cyclists in their route choice. We show that the resulting problem is NP-hard and devise a branch-and-bound algorithm that is able to provide a bound on the quality of the best solution in pseudo-polynomial time. Furthermore, we also create an efficient heuristic to tackle the problem and we compare the quality of the solutions that are generated by the heuristic with the bounds provided by the branch-and-bound algorithm. Also, we thoroughly discuss the complexity and running time of the heuristic.

    Description: This paper investigates the coordination problem of a supply chain (SC) composed of a manufacturer exhibiting corporate social responsibility (CSR) and a retailer faced with random demand. The random demand is made up of the multiplication of price-dependent demand and random demand factor (RDF), plus the CSR-dependent demand. The centralized decision problem of the SC is an extension of the existing price setting newsvendor problem (PSNP). It is found that the sufficient condition for the quasi-concavity of expected profit (EP) on PSNP can not ensure the quasi-concavity of EP of the SC. Then, the concavity condition of EP related to the CSR effect factor is presented in the case of uniformly distributed RDF and linear demand in price, and the concavity of EP is proven under centralized decision. For decentralized decision under manufacturer’s Stackelberg game, the manufacturer determines wholesale price and its CSR investment, and then the retailer decides the order quantity and the retail price. The standard revenue-sharing (RS) contract is found not able to coordinate the SC, so a modified RS (MRS) contract is proposed to coordinate the SC. Finally, numerical examples illustrate the validity of the theoretical analysis and the coordination effectiveness of the MRS contract via Matlab.

    Description: In this paper, we consider a multi-source Weber problem of m new facilities with respect to n demand regions in order to minimize the sum of the transportation costs between these facilities and the demand regions. We find a point on the border of each demand region from which the facilities serve the demand regions at these points. We present an algorithm including a location phase and an allocation phase in each iteration for solving this problem. An algorithm is also proposed for carrying out the location phase. Moreover, global convergence of the new algorithm is proved under mild assumptions, and some numerical results are presented.

    Description: This is the traditional triennial note used by the editors to give the readers of 4OR information on the state of the journal and its future. In the 3 years that have passed since the last editorial note (Liberti et al. in Q J Oper 13:1–13, 2015 ), three volumes (each containing four issues) of the journal have been published: vol. 13 (2015), vol. 14 (2016), and vol. 15 (2017).

    Description: Interior point methods usually rely on iterative methods to solve the linear systems of large scale problems. The paper proposes a hybrid strategy using groups for the preconditioning of these iterative methods. The objective is to solve large scale linear programming problems more efficiently by a faster and robust computation of the preconditioner. In these problems, the coefficient matrix of the linear system becomes ill conditioned during the interior point iterations, causing numerical difficulties to find a solution, mainly with iterative methods. Therefore, the use of preconditioners is a mandatory requirement to achieve successful results. The paper proposes the use of a new columns ordering for the splitting preconditioner computation, exploring the sparsity of the original matrix and the concepts of groups. This new preconditioner is designed specially for the final interior point iterations; a hybrid approach with the controlled Cholesky factorization preconditioner is adopted. Case studies show that the proposed methodology reduces the computational times with the same quality of solutions when compared to previous reference approaches. Furthermore, the benefits are obtained while preserving the sparse structure of the systems. These results highlight the suitability of the proposed approach for large scale problems.
