Local Search algorithms
- I am co-mainteiner of the EasyLocal, which is an object-oriented framework that can be used as a general tool for the development of local search algorithms.
- We studied real world variants of the Vehicle Routing Problem (Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows and Carrier-Dependent Costs'), the Container Loading Problem (Multiple Container Loading Problem with bearing weights and multi-drop) and the Vehicle Routing Problem with Three Dimensional Constraints (integrated logistics).
- We tackled the Patient Admission Scheduling Problem and we propose a new problem formulation (Dynamic Patient Admission Scheduling Problem under Uncertainty, Dynamic Patient Admission Scheduling with Operating Room Constraints, Flexible Horizon, and Patient Delays) that extend the PAS by including dynamic and uncertainty features.
