Hybrid evolutionary techniques for the maintenance scheduling problem

E.K. Burke, A.J. Smith
2000 IEEE Transactions on Power Systems  
Of course, in practice, for a problem like this, the time taken to produce a solution is not a major issue. What is far more important is the quality of the solution.  ...  The resulting algorithm from this hybrid approach has been termed a Memetic Algorithm. This paper investigates the use of a memetic algorithm for the thermal generator maintenance scheduling problem.  ...  It would be interesting to see whether the algorithm presented here could be usefully applied to this problem, and also if the technique can produce good results for a related problem in the electricity  ...

Decomposition based hybrid metaheuristics

Günther R. Raidl
2015 European Journal of Operational Research  
If designed appropriately, such hybrids frequently outperform simpler "pure" approaches as they are able to exploit the underlying methods' individual advantages and benefit from synergy.  ...  It has been recognized that these concepts may also provide a very fruitful basis for effective hybrid metaheuristics.  ...  Given a solution λ to the Lagrangian dual problem (3) and a corresponding optimal solution x * to the Lagrangian relaxation (2) that is also feasible for the original problem (1), i.e., Dx * ≥ d, the following  ...

Graham Kendall, Sigrid Knust, Celso C. Ribeiro, Sebastián Urrutia
2010 Computers & Operations Research  
A hybridization of simulated annealing with hill-climbing is proposed for the TTP. The search space is divided into a timetable space and a team assignment space.  ...  The TTP is solved by a hybrid algorithm combining Lagrangian relaxation and constraint programming in a hierarchical architecture.  ...  The best results are often obtained by methods derived from the hybridization of integer programming, constraint programming and metaheuristics.  ...
