Editorial Reviews

Review

"A truly remarkable and unique collection of work. . . . Invaluable."--Informs

"The world of local search has changed dramatically in the last decade and Aarts and Lenstra's book is a tribute to this development. . . . A very useful source."--Optima

From the Publisher

In recent years major methodological progress has been made in the design and analysis of local search algorithms in combinatorial optimization. Until now the results have been scattered throughout the available literature. This is the first book to collect results, consolidate the insights and stimulate further progress in the field. Chapters on simulated annealing, tabu search, genetic algorithms and neural networks, applications of local search to problems in management science and engineering, including the traveling salesman problem, vehicle routing, machine scheduling, VLSI design and code design. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Al-Azri on February 19, 2007
I bought this book for a graduate course. Despite the applause I see in the back cover, it is not so good as a textbook. It might be good if you are well-versed in the lexicon of optimization and optimization is your main area, then I think this book is good to understand the quantitative as well as the qualitative dimensions of each technique. For a novice researcher or student in the field, this is not the right book.
