Using the Firefly Optimization Method to Solve the Weighted Set Covering Problem
MetadataShow full item record
The Weighted Set Covering Problem is a formal model for many practical optimization problems. In this problem the goal is to choose a subset of columns of minimal cost covering every row. Here, a Binary Firefly Algorithm has been developed to tackle the Weighted Set Covering Problem. Firefly Algorithm is a recently developed population-based metaheuristic inspired by the flashing behaviour of fireflies. Experimental results show that our approach is competitive solving the problem at hand. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2014.
