|Title:||Heuristics and Exact Methods for Number Partitioning|
|Authors:||João Pedro Pedroso|
|Abstract:||Number partitioning is a classical NP-hard combinatorial optimization problem, whose solution is challenging for both exact and approximative methods. This work presents a new algorithm for number partitioning, based on ideas drawn from branch-and-bound, breadth first search, and beam search. A new set of benchmark instances for this problem is also proposed. The behavior of the new method on this and other test beds is analyzed and compared to other well known heuristics and exact algorithms.|
