package org.cicirello.search.operators
This package includes classes and interfaces for defining various operators required by simulated
annealing and other metaheuristics, such as mutation operators, along with other related classes
and interfaces.

ClassDescriptionImplement the CrossoverOperator interface to implement a crossover operator for use in evolutionary algorithms.A HybridCrossover enables using multiple crossover operators for the evolutionary algorithm, such that each time the
HybridCrossover.cross(T, T)
method is called, a randomly chosen crossover operator is applied to the candidate solution.A HybridMutation enables using multiple mutation operators for the search, such that each time theHybridMutation.mutate(T)
method is called, a randomly chosen mutation operator is applied to the candidate solution.A HybridMutation enables using multiple mutation operators for the search, such that each time theHybridUndoableMutation.mutate(T)
method is called, a randomly chosen mutation operator is applied to the candidate solution.InitializeBySimpleMetaheuristic<T extends Copyable<T>>This class implements theInitializer
interface to provide metaheuristics and other search algorithms with a way to generate initial candidate solutions to a problem, that are themselves generated via a metaheuristic.Initializer<T>Implement the Initializer interface to provide metaheuristics and other search algorithms with a way to generate initial candidate solutions to a problem.Implement the IterableMutationOperator interface to define a mutation operator that enables iterating systematically over the neighbors of a candidate solution, like one would do in a hill climber.Defines an interface for iterating over all of the mutants (i.e., neighbors) of a candidate solution to a problem.Implement the MutationOperator interface to implement a mutation operator for use in simulated annealing, genetic algorithms, and other evolutionary algorithms, and other metaheuristics, that require a way to generate random neighbors of a candidate solution.Implement the UndoableMutationOperator interface to implement a mutation operator for use in simulated annealing, and other metaheuristics, that require a way to generate random neighbors of a candidate solution, and which supports an undo method.A WeightedHybridCrossover enables using multiple crossover operators, such that each time theWeightedHybridCrossover.cross(T, T)
method is called, a randomly chosen crossover operator is applied to the candidate solutions.A WeightedHybridMutation enables using multiple mutation operators for the search, such that each time theWeightedHybridMutation.mutate(T)
method is called, a randomly chosen mutation operator is applied to the candidate solution.A WeightedHybridMutation enables using multiple mutation operators for the search, such that each time theWeightedHybridUndoableMutation.mutate(T)
method is called, a randomly chosen mutation operator is applied to the candidate solution.
