In this paper we present a new heuristic solution method for two-dimensional nesting problems. It is based on a simple local search scheme in which the neighborhood is any horizontal or vertical translation of a given polygon from its current position. To escape local minima we apply the meta-heuristic method Guided Local Search. The strength of our(More)
The connectivity of cancellous bone attracts increasing attention, as it has been hypothesized that a primary reason for decreasing strength and stiffness in osteoporosis is caused by a loss of trabecular elements and consequently a loss in connectivity. The Euler characteristic has in a few previous articles been used to express cancellous bone(More)
