Solving the set covering problem with binary cat swarm optimization
MetadataShow full item record
The Set Covering Problem is a formal model for many practical optimization problems. It consists in finding a subset of columns in a zero–one matrix such that they cover all the rows of the matrix at a minimum cost. To solve the Set Covering Problem we use a metaheuristic called Binary Cat Swarm Optimization. This metaheuristic is a binary version of Cat Swarm Optimization generated by observing cat behavior. Cats have two modes of behavior: seeking mode and tracing mode. We are the first ones to use this metaheuristic to solve the Set Covering Problem, for this the proposed algorithm has been tested on 65 benchmarks instances. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
