JAMES Core Module
The JAMES core module is part of the JAMES framework.
The core module includes many general components for both problem specification and search application.
A wide range of local search algorithms are provided out-of-the-box, including
- Random descent (basic local search)
- Steepest descent
- Tabu search
- Variable neighbourhood search
- Metropolis search
- Parallel tempering
Exhaustive search is also available, which is of course only feasible for problems with a reasonably small search space.
In addition, the core contains specific components for subset selection such as a predefined solution type, a generic problem specification and various subset neighbourhoods, as well as a greedy subset sampling heuristic (LR subset search).
