Improving vehicle routing using a customer waiting time colony.

Conference Proceeding
Sa'adah, S., Ross, P., & Paechter, B. (2004)
Improving vehicle routing using a customer waiting time colony. In J. Gottlieb, & G. Raidl (Eds.), Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimization, 188-198. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-540-24652-7_19
In the vehicle routing problem with time windows (VRPTW), there are two main objectives. The primary objective is to reduce the number of vehicles, the secondary one is to min...

A Hyper-Heuristic classifier for one dimensional bin packing problems: Improving classification accuracy by attribute evolution.

Conference Proceeding
Sim, K., Hart, E., & Paechter, B. (2012)
A Hyper-Heuristic classifier for one dimensional bin packing problems: Improving classification accuracy by attribute evolution. In Parallel Problem Solving from Nature: PPSN XII, (348-357). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-32964-7_35
A hyper-heuristic for the one dimensional bin packing problem is presented that uses an Evolutionary Algorithm (EA) to evolve a set of attributes that characterise a problem i...

Metaheuristics for university course timetabling.

Book Chapter
Lewis, R. M. R., Paechter, B., & Rossi-Doria, O. (2007)
Metaheuristics for university course timetabling. In K. Dahal, K. Chen Tan, & P. Cowling (Eds.), Evolutionary Scheduling, (237-272). Berlin / Heidelberg: Springer. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-540-48584-1_9
In this chapter we consider the NP-complete problem of university course timetabling. We note that it is often difficult to gain a deep understanding of these sorts of problem...
