Abstract
Pseudo-Boolean optimization (PBO) is usually used to model combinatorial optimization problems, especially for some real-world applications. Despite its significant importance in both theory and applications, there are few works on using local search to solve PBO. This paper develops a novel local search framework for PBO, which has three main ideas. First, we design a two-level selection strategy to evaluate all candidate variables. Second, we propose a novel deep optimization strategy to disturb some search spaces. Third, a sampling flipping method is applied to help the algorithm jump out of local optimum. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithms outperform three state-of-the-art PBO algorithms on most instances.

Improving Local Search for Minimum Weighted Connected Dominating Set Problem by Inner-Layer Local Search

Authors: Bohan Li, Kai Wang, Yiyuan Wang, and Shaowei Cai

Published in: LIPIcs, Volume 210, 27th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2021)


Abstract
The minimum weighted connected dominating set (MWCDS) problem is an important variant of connected dominating set problems with wide applications, especially in heterogenous networks and gene regulatory networks. In the paper, we develop a nested local search algorithm called NestedLS for solving MWCDS on classic benchmarks and massive graphs. In this local search framework, we propose two novel ideas to make it effective by utilizing previous search information. First, we design the restart based smoothing mechanism as a diversification method to escape from local optimal. Second, we propose a novel inner-layer local search method to enlarge the candidate removal set, which can be modelled as an optimized version of spanning tree problem. Moreover, inner-layer local search method is a general method for maintaining the connectivity constraint when dealing with massive graphs. Experimental results show that NestedLS outperforms state-of-the-art meta-heuristic algorithms on most instances.
