18 Fitness Landscapes and Performance of Metaheuristics

  title={18 Fitness Landscapes and Performance of Metaheuristics},
  author={Cyril Fonlupt and Denis Robilliard and Philippe Preux and El-Ghazali Talbi},
We perform a statistical analysis of the structure of the search space of some planar, euclidian instances of the traveling salesman problem. We want to depict this structure from the point of view of iterated local search algorithms. The objective is two-fold: understanding the experimentally known good performance of metaheuristics on the TSP and other combinatorial optimization problems; designing new techniques to search the space more efficiently. This work actually led us to design a… CONTINUE READING
