In this post, we’ll learn how to improve TSP tours using a well known and approved local search improvement heuristic approach. These improvement heuristics start with an initial solution and iteratively improve it until no further improvement is possible, then return the best solution found. Previously, we discussed how to generate initial solutions for TSP… Read more How to Improve TSP-Tours Applying the 2-opt Neighborhood

## Find optimal Solution to Knapsack Problem with Linear Programming in R

In another post I demonstrated how to develop a heuristic to solve the knapsack problem. We managed to solve the problem quite well and had an optimality gap of about 1%, that is, our solution was 1% away from the optimal solution. Here I’d like to demonstrate, how simple it is to solve the Knapsack… Read more Find optimal Solution to Knapsack Problem with Linear Programming in R
