Metaheuristic Algorithms - COMPX556 (2023)

Metaheuristic are stochastic search algorithms for solving massive scale combinatorial problems where exact algorithms do not exist. This paper explores the state-of-the-art metaheuristics such as GRASP, particle swarm optimisation, and parallel metaheuristics, along with their applications in operations research, science and engineering.
