  • Welfare-maximising location versus profit-maximising location
  • The development of an enterprise and the location of corporate headquarters - with special reference to an enterprise on the location and transfer of its headquarters
  • Enterprise ; Head office ; Japan ; Location
  • This paper aims to elucidate the mechanisms of the location and transfer of the headquarters of an enterprise. Snow Brand Milk Products Co., Ltd., Japan's largest dairy products company, is selected as a case study.
  • The location theory of firm revisited impacts of rising energy prices in Energy problems and regional development.
  • The impact of rising energy prices on the locational pattern of industries is analyzed by a simple two-firm straight line location model. The concavity of average cost function of final consumer's good with respect to locational variables is proved
  • for the case of linear homogeneous Cobb-Douglas production functions and this leads to the possible three cases of end-point location. The rise in energy prices induces double location at the market or double location at the port instead of separate location
  • The location and trend of high-rise buildings in Sendai
  • Japan ; Kyushu ; Land value ; Location ; Urbanism
  • The purpose of this paper aims to analyze the locational process of the high-rise buildings in Sendai City, Japan. It indicated the locational trend of these buildings from the urban core to the peripheral area along the main roads. - (KA)
  • Hub facility location with fixed costs
  • Facility location modeling
  • Centrality ; Communication ; Location ; Network ; Optimization ; Spatial system ; Transport cost
  • The paper introduces fixed facility costs into a hub location model, making the number of hubs a decision variable. As an initial effort toward solving the model, a two-step procedure is devised.
  • The effect on attribute prediction of location uncertainty in spatial data
  • Error ; Information ; Location ; Simulation ; Spatial analysis ; Spatial statistics ; Statistics
  • The AA. propose a statistical model for incorporating location error into spatial data analysis. They investigate the effect of location error on the spatial lag, the covariance function, and optimal spatial linear prediction.
  • An efficient heuristic algorithm for the transportation-location problem
  • Algorithme ; Généralités sur la géographie ; Mathématique ; Modèle ; Problème transport-location
  • Optimum location of hierarchical production units with respect to price-elastic demand
  • Economic cost ; Location ; Market ; Optimal location ; Pricing ; Spatial equilibrium ; Transport cost
  • The main objective of the study is to consider explicitly the ways in which alternative spatial pricing policies will affect location choice. The maximum-profit location is obtained by balancing price, demand, production cost, and transportation
  • Strategies for solving large location-allocation problems by heuristic methods
  • Decision ; Location ; Location-allocation model ; Market area ; Micro computing ; Service ; Spatial structure
  • The AA. show that processing costs for the most accurate, heuristic, location-allocation algorithm can be drastically reduced by exploiting the spatial structure of location-allocation problems.
  • Facilitating location independence with computerized conversation systems
  • Communication ; Economic environment ; Enterprise ; Information ; Location ; Organization
  • An organization's interaction with its environment forms the basis of its daily work and takes the form of information links composed of fundamental invisible blocks called conversations. To achieve location independence it is necessary
  • for organizations to develop and maintain environment interactions independent of their location. Information technology systems are able to reduce location restrictions.
  • Shift and share and the theory of industrial location
  • A continuous location problem with different norms
  • Cold war geopolitics: ambassy locations
  • Geopolitics ; Location ; Political geography ; Teaching of geography
  • Diplomatic ties between countries during the Cold War, 1945-1991, are studied for the world, the USA, the Soviet Union, NATO and Warsaw Pact. With the collapse of the geopolitical arrangements of that era, embassy locations are also changing. - (DWG)
  • The location of producer services and the hierarchy of cities in Japan : a case study of the Tohoku region
  • Honshu ; Japan ; Location ; Service ; Urban development ; Urban structure
  • This paper aims to examine the location of producer services to understand the differences in growth among the Japanese cities. The A. analysed this point in Tohoku Region in Japan. - (KA)
  • The locational pattern and functions of periodic markets in Zaria Division, Nigeria
  • The schedule of markets and their location are closely related to population density and their locational spacing. Research shows that these schedules fit the needs and objectives of te producer/sellers, but that improvements could be made. (EMS).
  • Office location in transition: observations on research in Britain and North America in Special issue on office location.
  • Towards a process model of office-location decisionmaking in Special issue on office location.
  • Locational preferences of Japanese real estate investors in North America
  • Economic behaviour ; Finance ; Foreign investment ; Information flow ; Investment ; Japaneses ; Location ; Location choice ; North America ; Real estate property ; United States of America
  • This research seeks to establish how the locational preferences of Japanese investors were established. It utilizes a survey of 39 investment companies and distinguishes a number of ways in which information concerning overseas real estate
  • investment opportunities was reviewed by decision makers in Japan. The results show that the investors had fairly fixed locational preferences, were tied to a restricted range of centers, and hesitated to expand into a wider range of locations.
  • The socially optimal and equilibrium locations of two stores or libraries with consumer search
  • Equilibrium model ; Library ; Optimal location ; Retail trade ; Shop
  • This paper examines the socially optimal (and also equilibrium) locations of two stores or libraries on a linear market of unit length. If each consumer has probability of finding a desired product at each store, then the socially optimal locations
  • are never completely centralized for full information, but are completely centralized for when costly visit search is necessary. The Nash equilibrium locations of two stores, and various alternative models for the socially optimal locations of two stores
  • Locational characteristics of American resort hotels
  • Florida ; Hawaii ; Hotel trade ; Leisure ; Location ; Nevada ; Tourism ; Touristic resort ; United States
  • One half of the 834 resort hotels in the USA are in Florida, Nevada, and Hawaii. Coastal locations are especially numerous and many are in locations having either warm winters or cool summers. Conventions now form a major part of their business
