ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Stochastic Local Search (SLS) is a simple and effective paradigm for attacking a variety of Combinatorial (Optimization) Problems (COP). However, it is often non-trivial to get good results from an SLS; the designer of an SLS needs to undertake a laborious and ad-hoc algorithm tuning and re-design process for a particular COP. There are two general approaches, Black-box approach treats the SLS as a black-box in tuning the SLS parameters. White-box approach takes advantage of humans to observe the SLS in the tuning and SLS re-design. In this paper, we develop an integrated white+black box approach with extensive use of visualization (white-box) and factorial design (black-box) for tuning, and more importantly, for designing arbitrary SLS algorithms. Our integrated approach combines the strengths of white-box and black-box approaches and produces better results than either alone. We demonstrate an effective tool using the integrated white+black box approach to design and tune variants of Robust Tabu Search (Ro-TS) for Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP). © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2007.||Source Title:||Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics)||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/40637||ISBN:||3540749691||ISSN:||03029743|
