In this paper Tabu Search has been compared with random search on solving a constraint satisfaction problem, namely the Radio Links Frequency Assignment Problem (RLFAP). The effect of Arc-Consistency has been demonstrated. Search Heuristics have been optimised. Results on scaling behaviour and performance of the algorithm under perturbation of a problem are(More)
