Generic Heuristics for Combinatorial Optimization Problems

  title={Generic Heuristics for Combinatorial Optimization Problems},
  author={Michael Affenzeller and Ren{\'e} Mayrhofer},
This paper discusses the use of several heuristic techniques for problems of combinatorial optimization. We especially consider the advantages and disadvantages of naturally inspired generic techniques like Simulated Annealing, Evolution Strategies, or Genetic Algorithms. This reflection gives a quite intuitive motivation for hybrid approaches that aim to combine advantageous aspects of the certain strategies. Among those we formulate our new hybrid multidisciplinary ideas that are mainly based… CONTINUE READING
