Conference Proceeding
Urquhart, N., Hart, E., & Hutcheson, W. (2019)
Quantifying the effects of increasing user choice in MAP-Elites applied to a Workforce Scheduling and Routing Problem. In EvoApplications 2019: Applications of Evolutionary Computation, 49-63. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-030-16692-2_4
Quality-diversity algorithms such as MAP-Elites provide a means of supporting the users when finding and choosing solutions to a problem by returning a set of solutions which ...

The importance of the individual encoding in memetic algorithms with diversity control applied to large Sudoku puzzles

Conference Proceeding
Segura, C., Segredo, E., & Miranda, G. (2017)
The importance of the individual encoding in memetic algorithms with diversity control applied to large Sudoku puzzles. In 2017 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC). https://doi.org/10.1109/CEC.2017.7969565
In recent years, several memetic algorithms with explicit mechanisms to delay convergence have shown great promise when solving 9x9 Sudoku puzzles. This paper analyzes and ext...

The Design and Evaluation of a Modern C++ Library

Conference Proceeding
Chalmers, K. (2016)
The Design and Evaluation of a Modern C++ Library. In Communicating Process Architectures 2016
Although many CSP inspired libraries exist, none yet have targeted modern C++ (C++11 onwards). The work presented has a main objective of providing a new C++ CSP library which...
