Estimating attraction basin sizes
The performance of local search algorithms is influenced by the properties that the neighborhood imposes on the search space. Among these properties, the number of local optima has been traditionally considered as a ...
A note on the Boltzmann distribution and the linear ordering problem
The Boltzmann distribution plays a key role in the field of optimization as it directly connects this field with that of probability. Basically, given a function to optimize, the Boltzmann distribution associated to this ...
