Globally optimal triangulations of minimum weight using Ant Colony Optimization metaheuristic
(Iberoamerican Science & Technology Education Consortium, 2010-06)
Globally optimal triangulations are difficult to be found by deterministic methods as, for most type of criteria, no polynomial algorithm is known. In this work, we consider the Minimum Weight Triangulation (MWT) problem ...
Using metaheuristics to optimize the combination of classifier and cluster ensembles
(IOS PressAmsterdam, 2015)
We investigate how to make a simpler version of an existing algorithm, named 'C POT. 3'E, from Consensus between Classification and Clustering Ensembles, more user-friendly by automatically tuning its main parameters with ...
Metaheuristics Applied To the Intercity Public Transport Problem
(Asociación Argentina de Mecánica Computacional, 2011-11)
This paper presents a study on the use of metaheuristics for the treatment of the NP-hard problem known as the Intercity Public Transport Problem. The study aimed at optimizing the bus routes and frequencies through two ...
An application of a multi-objective tabu search algorithm to a bicriteria flowshop problem
(Kluwer Academic PublDordrechtHolanda, 2004)
Genetic algorithm, MIP and improvement heuristic applied to the MLCLP with backlogging
The present paper solves the multi-level capacitated lot sizing problem with backlogging (MLCLSPB) combining a genetic algorithm with the solution of mixed-integer programming models and the improvement heuristic fix and ...
Lot sizing and furnace scheduling in small foundries
A lot sizing and scheduling problem prevalent in small market-driven foundries is studied. There are two related decision levels: (1) the furnace scheduling of metal alloy production, and (2) moulding machine planning which ...
