A PROBE-Based Heuristic for Graph Partitioning

  title={A PROBE-Based Heuristic for Graph Partitioning},
  author={Pierre Chardaire and Musbah Barake and Geoff P. McKeown},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Computers},
A new heuristic algorithm, PROBE_BA, which is based on the recently introduced metaheuristic paradigm population- reinforced optimization-based exploration (PROBE), is proposed for solving the Graph Partitioning Problem. The "exploration" part of PROBE_BA is implemented by using the differential-greedy algorithm of Battiti and Bertossi and a modification of the Kernighan-Lin algorithm at the heart of Bui and Moon's genetic algorithm BFS _GBA. Experiments are used to investigate properties of… CONTINUE READING
