The authors involved in this book are among the top researchers in their domain. Series Title: Responsibility: Christian Blum, GuÌˆnther R. In particular, many novel molecular docking algorithms which have a high degree of inherent parallelism are de- signed and implemented to reach higher speedup and parallel efficiency. Fire behavior prediction can be a fundamental tool to reduce losses and damages in emergency situations. The search is carried out by accepting worse solutions to avoid being left trapped in local optimums. In order to analyze and compare perfect solutions at the expense of performance of both algorithms, a chain of computational experiments on six generally used test functions for assessing the accuracy and the performance of algorithms, in swarm intelligence fields are used. The book is a valuable introduction and reference for researchers and graduate students in these domains.

Ebook Description This book explains the most prominent and some promising new, general techniques that combine metaheuristics with other optimization methods. The book is a valuable introduction and reference for researchers and graduate students in these domains. Research in metaheuristics for combinatorial optimization problems has lately experienced a noteworthy shift towards the hybridization of metaheuristics with other techniques for optimization. Finally, we review several case studies to show what sort of information can be gained by simulation of biomedically interesting proteins, and how that may impact drug discovery, as well as a discussion of some areas in which simulation may prove more useful in the near future. Molecular docking, as one of widely used virtual screening methods, aims to predict the binding-conformations of small molecule ligands to the appropriate target binding site.

Additionally, from the employee's point of view, a set of balanced routes is also sought. The material parameters are the most significant, but they are restricted by currently available materials and module fabricating technologies. This article is protected by copyright. Resolution methods based on metaheuristic and hybrid-metaheuristic algorithms have been developed to solve the above large-scale optimization problems. Contents: Introduction -- Incomplete Solution Representations and Decoders -- Hybridization Based on Problem Instance Reduction -- Hybridization Based on Large Neighborhood Search -- Making Use of a Parallel, Non-independent, Construction of Solutions Within Metaheuristics -- Hybridization Based on Complete Solution Archives -- Further Hybrids and Conclusions.

The literature review is accompanied by the presentation of illustrative examples. This hybridization is not restricted to different variants of metaheuristics but includes, for example, the combination of mathematical programming, dynamic programming, or constraint programming with metaheuristics, reflecting cross-fertilization in fields such as optimization, algorithmics, mathematical modeling, operations research, statistics, and simulation. We conducted computational experiments on a set of difficult benchmark instances. This result reconciles a discrepancy between the known polyene chain orientation from crystallographic and spectroscopic studies and opens the door for further investigation into the intermolecular interactions between the retinal ligand and the apoprotein opsin. The authors are among the leading researchers in the hybridization of metaheuristics with other techniques for optimization, and their work reflects the broad shift to problem-oriented rather than algorithm-oriented approaches, enabling faster and more effective implementation in real-life applications.

Semi-flexible docking method was used, where trypsin was treated as a rigid body and all rotatable bonds in the catechins were sampled. This hybridization may help to strike the balance between exploration and exploitation in the searching process. This book explains the most prominent and some promising new, general techniques that combine metaheuristics with other optimization methods. The explicit models provide correlation coefficients of 0. Many real-world problems were long known as unsolved ones. A study branch that mocks-up a population of network of swarms or agents with the ability to self-organise is Swarm intelligence. From the company's perspective, the minimization of the travel cost is desired as well as that of the total number of vehicles.

However, the literature lacks a comprehensive comparison between those approaches. The intent of this thesis is twofold. A first introductory chapter reviews the basic principles of local search, prominent metaheuristics, and tree search, dynamic programming, mixed integer linear programming, and constraint programming for combinatorial optimization purposes. These simulations, especially when combined with virtual screening, have been a tool in drug discovery. All crossover operators are integrated in the same standard evolutionary framework and using the same parameter setting to allow a comparison focused on the recombination process. In this paper, we present an instantiation of the framework for tackling the constrained two-dimensional non-guillotine cutting problem and the container loading problem using a simulated annealing generator. The authors are among the leading researchers in the hybridization of metaheuristics with other techniques for optimization, and their work reflects the broad shift to problem-oriented rather than algorithm-oriented approaches, enabling faster and more effective implementation in real-life applications.

The recent advent of hyper-heuristic approaches Burke et al. Experimental results of both the algorithms are tabulated and compared, which shows that firefly algorithm gives better performance as compared to cuckoo search algorithm in terms of robustness, fitness function and convergence rate. In this paper, the order allocation with quantity discount of a single product is considered. The search is based on representing a solution to the overall problem as being composed by one solution from each subproblem. In contrast with enumerative approaches e. The Generate-and-Solve is a hybrid framework to cope with hard combinatorial optimization problems by artificially reducing the search space of solutions.

An important aspect of the evolutionary search process refers to the recombination process of existing individuals in order to generate new potentially better fit offspring leading to more promising areas of the search space. Hereby, hybridization is not restricted to the combination of different metaheuristics but includes, for example, the combination of exact algorithms and metaheuristics. The fact is that coping real-world constraints in allocating the shift duties fairly among the available nurses is still a hard task to accomplish. The effectiveness of the proposed approach in addressing the non-convex economic dispatch problem is demonstrated by simulations implemented on three standard test systems.
