Combinatorial optimization with gaoptim package

May 27, 2013

(This article was first published on Random Miner, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

My recent update of gaoptim package brings up a new function, GAPerm, which can be used to perform combinatorial optimization using the Genetic Algorithm approach.

The example below solves a TSP instance with 10 points around a circumference, then plots the results.
Enjoy it!
