Book Description
This open access book demonstrates all the steps required to design heuristic algorithms for difficult optimization. The classic problem of the travelling salesman is used as a common thread to illustrate all the techniques discussed. This problem is ideal for introducing readers to the subject because it is very intuitive and its solutions can be graphically represented. The book features a wealth of illustrations that allow the concepts to be understood at a glance.
About the Authors Éric D. Taillard is a professor at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Western Switzerland, HEIGVD campus in YverdonlesBains.
