## A biased random-key genetic algorithm for a 2D and 3D bin packing problem

We present a novel multi-population biased random-key genetic algorithm (BRKGA) for the 2D and 3D bin packing problem. The approach uses a maximal-space representation to manage the free spaces in the bins. The proposed algorithm uses a decoder based on a novel placement procedure within a multi-population genetic algorithm based on random keys. The BRKGA … Read more
