  • This thesis presents a set of rigorous methodologies for tuning the performance of algorithms that solve optimisation problems. Many optimisation problems are difficult and time-consuming to solve exactly. An alternative is to use an approximate algorithm that solves the problem to an acceptable level of quality and provides such a solution in a reasonable time. Using optimisation algorithms typically requires choosing the settings of tuning parameters that adjust algorithm performance subject… CONTINUE READING
