A new metaheuristic genetic-based placement algorithm for 2D strip packing

Jaya Thomas, Narendra S. Chaudhari
2014 Journal of Industrial Engineering International  
The position is subject to confinement of no overlapping of blocks. The problem is a complex NP-hard combinatorial optimization, thus a heuristic based on genetic algorithm is proposed to solve it.  ...  Such a combination resulted in better population evolution and faster solution convergence to optimal. The approach is subjected to a comprehensive test using benchmark instances.  ...  The packing problem is not limited to industries, but can also be seen in other dimensions like in very-large-scale integration design, memory allocation during storage and in the field of optical fiber  ...

Survival of the flexible: explaining the recent dominance of nature-inspired optimization within a rapidly evolving world [article]

James M Whitacre
2011 arXiv   pre-print
This study presents evidence that the use of NIM is not only growing, but indeed appears to have surpassed mathematical optimization techniques (MOT) in several important metrics related to academic research  ...  Although researchers often comment on the rising popularity of nature-inspired meta-heuristics (NIM), there has been a paucity of data to directly support the claim that NIM are growing in prominence compared  ...  On 852 large scale problems (where optimal solutions are not known), ES was shown to find what they call "near optimal" solutions 12 times faster than Simulated Annealing (SA).MAThis paper surveys memetic  ...
