ID Walk: A Candidate List Strategy with a Simple Diversification Device

  title={ID Walk: A Candidate List Strategy with a Simple Diversification Device},
  author={Bertrand Neveu and Gilles Trombettoni and Fred Glover},
This paper presents a new optimization metaheuristic called ID Walk (Intensification/Diversification Walk) that offers advantages for combining simplicity with effectiveness. In addition to the number S of moves, ID Walk uses only one parameter Max which is the maximum number of candidate neighbors studied in every move. This candidate list strategy manages the Max candidates so as to obtain a good tradeoff between intensification and diversification. A procedure has also been designed to tune… CONTINUE READING
