Optimization with Metaheuristics (R-Module)

About the course:

This course is a seminar which continues with advanced metaheuristics, so called population-based metaheuristics. You will conduct a small implementation project, where you develop a metaheuristic for the VRP-problem using a specific metaheuristic (such as Genetic Algorithm, Ant Colony Optimization, Particle Swarm Optimization, or other). Prerequisite is the successful participation in the above course in the 1st block.


The course takes place in the 2nd block of the winter term 2016/17.
