Developing A Combined Strategy For Solving Quadratic Assignment Problem

[Full Text]

Index Terms: Combination Methods, Combinatorial Optimization Problem, Quadratic Assigment Problem, Random Point Strategy.



Abstract: The quadratic assigment problem (QAP) is one of the most interesting and most challenging combinatorial optimization problems in existence. In this paper we propose a random point strategy to get a starting point, and then we use a combination methods to get ‘optimal’ solution. As a computational experience we’ve solved QAP 30 x 30 adopted from Nugent and backboard wiring problem 42  42, adopted from Skorin-Kapov.
