Overview

Intended as a reference for researchers and practitioners interested in gaining detailed understanding of scatter search with the goal of expanding and applying this methodology, as well as being suitable for a graduate-level seminar on metaheuristic optimization, this volume begins with three tutorial chapters. Advanced scatter search design is next addressed, followed by a summary of tabu search concepts that are linked with scatter search. Connections with other population-based approaches are then addressed, as well as scatter search applications; commercial scatter search implementation; and experiences, findings, and future directions.
