English abstract:
The generalized minimum vertex-biconnected network
problem plays an important role in the design of survivable
backbone networks that should be fault tolerant to single
component outage. When given a graph where the nodes are
partitioned into clusters, the goal is to find a subgraph of
minimum costs that connects exactly one node from each cluster
in a vertex-biconnected way. We present a memetic algorithm
that uses fast local improvement methods to produce high quality
solutions and an intelligent crossover operator which controls the
balance between diversity and intensity in the population. Tests
on Euclidean TSPlib instances with up to 442 nodes show that
this approach is highly efficient.
