A search space "cartography" for guiding graph coloring heuristics
We present a search space analysis and its application in improving local search algorithms for the graph coloring problem. Using a classical distance measure between colorings, w...

Position-Guided Tabu Search Algorithm for the Graph Coloring Problem
A very undesirable behavior of any heuristic algorithm is to be stuck in some specific parts of the search space, in particular in the basins of attraction of the local optima. Wh...

Analyzing the landscape of a graph based hyper-heuristic for timetabling problems
Hyper-heuristics can be thought of as “heuristics to choose heuristics”. They are concerned with adaptively finding solution methods, rather than directly producing a solutio...

A graph-based hyper-heuristic for educational timetabling problems
This paper presents an investigation of a simple generic hyper-heuristic approach upon a set of widely used constructive heuristics (graph coloring heuristics) in timetabling. Wit...

Translational polygon covering using intersection graphs
We investigate the following translational 2D polygon covering problem: for a collection of covering polygons and a target point (or polygon) set, decide if the covering polygons ...
