Tree Decomposition Methods for the Periodic Event Scheduling Problem

Abstract

This paper proposes an algorithm that decomposes the Periodic Event Scheduling Problem (PESP) into trees that can efficiently be solved. By identifying at an early stage which partial solutions can lead to a feasible solution, the decomposed components can be integrated back while maintaining feasibility if possible. If not, the modifications required to regain feasibility can be found efficiently. These techniques integrate dynamic programming into standard search methods. The performance of these heuristics are very satisfying, as the problem using publicly available benchmarks can be solved within a reasonable amount of time, in an alternative way than the currently accepted leading-edge techniques. Furthermore, these heuristics do not necessarily rely on linearity of the objective function, which facilitates the research of timetabling under nonlinear circumstances.
