A post showing how a genetic algorithm when used appropriately can be used as a powerful means to solve the n-Queens problem of increasing sizes. A downloadable Visual Studio 2010 …

Introduction Many real-world optimization problems require multiple, often conflicting objectives, to optimized simultaneously. Historically, their solution was frequently addressed by single fitness function consisting of a weighted sum of the …

Sorting networks are networks consisting of wires that carry input values along with a number of interconnections between pairs of these wires, which function as comparators for swapping values on …

An excellent implementation of the Simplex algorithm exists over at Google Code, written by Tommaso Urli: https://code.google.com/p/cpplex/ Implemented as class library, it relies on no other dependencies other than the …

Introduction The flow deviation algorithm as developed by Leonard Kleinrock et al is an efficient means of assigning routes and flows for a given network topology so as to minimize …

Following on from a previous posting on genetic algorithm based routing optimization, further improvements have been made and the source code has been made available. This software is written using …

Introduction Following on from a previous posting on Simulated Annealing applied to travelling salesman problems, here is a posting that carries on in a similar vein, this time focusing on …

Introduction Following from a previous post, I have extended the ability of the program to implement an algorithm based on Simulated Annealing and hill-climbing and applied it to some standard …

Introduction Some initial results from experimenting with the 2-opt heuristic and applying it to a standard traveling salesman test problem. A summary of the 2-opt heuristic is given here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2-opt …
