Metaheuristics

A Metaheuristic describes a general class of algorithm used to find solutions to optimization problems when the exact techniques prove to be insufficient.

 

There are a wide range of metaheuristics algorithms, including:

- simulated annealing,

- taboos search,

- variable neighborhood search,

- guided local search,

- ant colony optimization,

- particle swarming optimization,

- genetic algorithms
