Stone, C., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2018)
On the Synthesis of Perturbative Heuristics for Multiple Combinatorial Optimisation Domains. In Parallel Problem Solving from Nature – PPSN XV 15th International Conference, Coimbra, Portugal, September 8–12, 2018, Proceedings, Part Ihttps://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-319-99253-2_14
Hyper-heuristic frameworks, although intended to be cross-domain at the highest level, rely on a set of domain-specific low-level heuristics at lower levels. For some domains,...
