An Empirical Evaluation of Walk-and-Round Heuristics for Mixed-Integer Linear Programs

Geometric random walks have been proposed and analyzed for solving optimization problems. In this paper we report our computational experience with generating feasible integer solutions of mixed-integer linear programs using geometric random walks, and a random ray approach. A feasibility pump is used to heuristically round the generated points. Computational results on MIPLIB2003 and COR@L … Read more
