By Per Kristian Lehre, Carsten Witt (auth.), Luca Di Gaspero, Andrea Schaerf, Thomas Stützle (eds.)

Metaheuristics were a truly energetic examine subject for greater than 20 years. in this time many new metaheuristic techniques were devised, they've been experimentally proven and more advantageous on not easy benchmark difficulties, and so they have confirmed to be vital instruments for tackling optimization projects in a number of functional functions. In different phrases, metaheuristics are these days demonstrated as one of many major seek paradigms for tackling computationally not easy difficulties. nonetheless, there are various study demanding situations within the quarter of metaheuristics. those demanding situations variety from extra basic questions about theoretical houses and function promises, empirical set of rules research, the powerful configuration of metaheuristic algorithms, ways to mix metaheuristics with different algorithmic innovations, in the direction of extending the to be had recommendations to take on ever tougher problems.

This edited quantity grew out of the contributions awarded on the 9th Metaheuristics foreign convention that was once held in Udine, Italy, 25-28 July 2011. The convention comprised 117 displays of peer-reviewed contributions and three invited talks, and it's been attended via 169 delegates. The chapters which are gathered during this ebook exemplify contributions to a number of of the examine instructions defined above.

2: Illustration of a multicriterion view considering the relative performance r(pi , s j ) on test-problems p01 and p02 as the two objective functions (to be minimized), and the relative performance of the solvers s01 , s02 , s03 , and s04 as the coordinates in this (relative) performance space R|P| . Solver s01 is the best performer on problem p01 , and solver s04 is the best performer on problem p02 In the parlance of multiobjective optimization [7] one can see that solver s02 is dominated by solver s03 , as solver s03 has a better performance in all (|P| = 2) test-problems considered.
