Limits of Local Search: Quality and Efficiency

Norbert Bus, Shashwat Garg, Nabil H. Mustafa, Saurabh Ray
2016 Discrete & Computational Geometry  
As currently local search is the only known method that gives approximation factors that could be useful in practice, it becomes important to explore the limits -in both efficiency and quality -of local  ...  Finding efficient (3, 2)-local search algorithms then becomes the key bottleneck in efficient and good-quality algorithms. In this paper we present such improved algorithms.  ...  As currently local search is the only known method that gives approximation factors that could be useful in practice, it becomes important to explore the limits -in both efficiency and quality -of local  ...

An efficient combined local and global search strategy for optimization of parallel kinematic mechanisms with joint limits and collision constraints [article]

Haribhau Durgesh
2022 arXiv   pre-print
In this article, a novel optimization methodology is proposed by combining a local search, Nelder-Mead algorithm, with global search methodologies such as low discrepancy distribution for faster and more  ...  The presence of passive joint limits as well as the singularities and self-collisions lead to a complicated relation between the input and output parameters.  ...  The third author acknowledges the support of M-RoCK project (FKZ 01IW21002) funded by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) with federal funds from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) respectively  ...

効果的な局所探索制限によるMemetic Algorithmの高速化

Yuichi Nagata, Shigenobu Kobayashi, Satoshi Tojo
2010 Transactions of the Japanese society for artificial intelligence

Distant Search, but Local Implementation? Using the Crowd's Evaluation to Overcome Organizational Limitations in the Selection of Crowdsourced Ideas

Lisa Wimbauer, Patrick Figge, Carolin Haeussler
2019 International Conference on Information Systems  
We contribute to literature on local search and its repercussions in the evaluation of crowdsourced ideas for implementation.  ...  We argue that local search leads to differences between crowd and organizational evaluators. Further, organizational evaluation is restricted by the use of formal evaluation criteria.  ...  It is more likely that they will only engage in extensive search for clusters of ideas, which seem more promising and render the search process more efficient as retrieved knowledge supports the evaluation  ...

Efficient and High-quality Prehensile Rearrangement in Cluttered and Confined Spaces [article]

Rui Wang, Yinglong Miao, Kostas E. Bekris
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Similarly, the resulting global planner is computationally more efficient and has a higher success rate, while producing high-quality solutions for non-monotone instances (i.e., only 1.3 additional actions  ...  The monotone solver reasons about robot-object constraints and uses them to effectively prune the search space.  ...  Efficient and Complete Local Monotone Solver: Constraint Informed Rearrangement Search (CIRS) Fig. 2 ( 2 a) shows an example where the goal of o 1 hinders the rearrangement of o 4 .  ...

Limits of Localism: Four Dimensions of Power

Ali Madanipour
2017 Transactions of the Association of European Schools of Planning  
There is also a gap between the definitions and functions allocated to the local in a hierarchical division of labour, relations with intra-and extra-local political and economic forces, and the mythological  ...  First the ontology of the local is examined, with its substantive, relational and experiential aspects.  ...  In these perspectives from the top of bureaucracies or from the marketplace, the local is reduced to organisational or exchange relations, while their representations and rationale are limited to efficiency  ...

Arc-support Line Segments Revisited: An Efficient and High-quality Ellipse Detection [article]

Changsheng Lu, Siyu Xia, Ming Shao, Yun Fu
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Afterward, two complementary approaches, namely, locally selecting the arc-support group with higher saliency and globally searching all the valid paired groups, are adopted to fit the initial ellipses  ...  Over the years many ellipse detection algorithms spring up and are studied broadly, while the critical issue of detecting ellipses accurately and efficiently in real-world images remains a challenge.  ...  Localization Accuracy and Efficiency Analysis Localization accuracy is a critical index to testify whether an ellipse detector to be high-quality or not.  ...
