Given a set of objects and a symmetric matrix of dissimilarities between them, Unidimensional Scaling is the problem of finding a representation by locating points on a continuum. Approximating dissimilarities by the absolute value of the difference between coordinates on a line constitutes a serious computational problem. This paper presents an algorithm(More)
We present an original method for partitioning by automatic classification , using the optimization technique of tabu search. The method uses a classical tabu search scheme based on transfers for the minimization of the within variance; it introduces in the tabu list the indicator of the object transfered. This method is compared with two stochastic(More)
We use the heuristics known as ant colony optimization in the partitioning problem for improving solutions of k-means method. Each ant in the algorithm is associated to a partition, which is modified by the principles of the heuristics; that is, by the random selection of an element, and the assignment of another element which is chosen according to a(More)
