Kenneth and Daniel were part of the organizing committee of EPS2016: a PhD school in matheuristics that took place in Lorient (France) in April, 2016. They also coordinated the lab sessions, in which the students had the chance to develop optimization methods to
A set of test instances. 2 different types of nodes (labelled as type 1 or type 2), randomly generated around cluster centers, density is normally distributed. Possible applications: network generation/network optimization for telecommunications networks, electricity networks, water distribution networks, gas
Bagana fragments generated in “Generating structured music for bagana using quality metrics based on Markov models”
Below are the example bagana fragments generated by the VNS described in the paper D. Herremans, S. Weisser, K. Sörensen, and D. Conklin, “Generating structured music for bagana using quality metrics based on markov models,” Expert systems with applications, vol.
Instances in the paper “Multi-objective microzone-based vehicle routing for courier companies: From tactical to operational planning”
Distribution companies that serve a very large number of customers, courier companies for example, often partition the geographical region served by a depot into zones. Each zone is assigned to a single vehicle and each vehicle serves a single zone.
Luca Talarico successfully defended his PhD in February 2015. The title of his dissertation is “Secure Vehicle Routing: models and algorithms to increase security and reduce costs in the cash-in-transit sector”. Below, you can find his dissertation, the presentation for his public defense and a set
