## A LINEAR TIME ALGORITHM FOR THE KOOPMANS-BECKMANN QAP LINEARIZATION AND RELATED PROBLEMS

An instance of the quadratic assignment problem (QAP) with cost matrix Q is said to be linearizable if there exists an instance of the linear assignment problem (LAP) with cost matrix C such that for each assignment, the QAP and LAP objective function values are identical. The QAP linearization problem can be solved in O(n4) … Read more
