Crossover control in selection hyper-heuristics: case studies using MKP and HyFlex
Drake, John H. (2014) Crossover control in selection hyper-heuristics: case studies using MKP and HyFlex. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Hyper-heuristics are a class of high-level search methodologies which operate over a search space of heuristics rather than a search space of solutions. Hyper-heuristic research has set out to develop methods which are more general than traditional search and optimisation techniques. In recent years, focus has shifted considerably towards cross-domain heuristic search. The intention is to develop methods which are able to deliver an acceptable level of performance over a variety of different problem domains, given a set of low-level heuristics to work with.
