Multi-neighbourhood Local Search with Application to Course Timetabling

  title={Multi-neighbourhood Local Search with Application to Course Timetabling},
  author={Luca Di Gaspero and Andrea Schaerf},
A recent trend in local search concerns the exploitation of several different neighbourhood functions so as to increase the ability of the algorithm to navigate the search space. In this work we investigate the use of local search techniques based on various combinations of neighbourhood functions, and we apply it to a timetabling problem. In particular, we propose a set of generic operators that automatically compose neighbourhood functions, giving rise to more complex ones. In the exploration… CONTINUE READING
