Finding feasible timetables using group-based operators.

Journal Article
Lewis, R. M. R. & Paechter, B. (2007)
Finding feasible timetables using group-based operators. IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation. 11, 397-413. doi:10.1109/TEVC.2006.885162. ISSN 1089-778X
This paper describes the applicability of the so-called "grouping genetic algorithm" to a well-known version of the university course timetabling problem. We note that there a...

A GA evolving instructions for a timetable builder.

Conference Proceeding
Blum, C., Correia, S., Dorigo, M., Paechter, B., Rossi-Doria, O., & Snoek, M. (2001)
A GA evolving instructions for a timetable builder. In E. Burke, & P. Causmaecker (Eds.), Proceedings of the Conference on the Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling (PATAT 2002), 120-123
In this work we present a Genetic Algorithm for tackling timetabling problems. Our approach uses an indirect solution representation, which denotes a number of instructions fo...

Solving CSPs with evolutionary algorithms using self-adaptive constraint weights.

Conference Proceeding
Eiben, A. E., Jansen, B., Michalewicz, Z., & Paechter, B. (2000)
Solving CSPs with evolutionary algorithms using self-adaptive constraint weights. In D. Whitley (Ed.), GECCO-2000 : proceedings of the genetic and evolutionary computation conference, 128-134
This paper examines evolutionary algorithms (EAs) extended by various penalty-based approaches to solve constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs). In some approaches, the penalt...
