Generalized column generation for linear programming
(Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2002)
Column generation is a well-known and widely practiced technique for solving linear programs with too many variables or constraints to include in the initial formulation explicitly. Instead, the required column information ...
Mesh topology design in overlay virtual private networks
The mesh topology design problem in overlay virtual private networks is studied. Given a set of customer nodes and an associated traffic matrix, tunnels that connect node pairs through a service provider network are ...
Balancing of U-type assembly systems using simulated annealing
(Taylor & Francis, 2001)
The paper presents a new simulated annealing (SA)-based algorithm for the assembly line-balancing problem with a U-type con®guration. The proposed algorithm employs an intelligent mechanism to search a large solution space. ...
