Diversified Late Acceptance Search
The well-known Late Acceptance Hill Climbing (LAHC) search aims to overcome the main downside of traditional Hill Climbing (HC) search, which is often quickly trapped in a local optimum due to strictly accepting only non-worsening moves within each iteration. In contrast, LAHC also accepts worsening moves, by keeping a circular array of fitness values of previously visited solutions and comparing the fitness values of candidate solutions against the least recent element in the array. While the straightforward strategy followed by LAHC has proven effective, there are nevertheless situations where LAHC can unfortunately behave in a similar manner to HC, even when using a large fitness array. For example, when the same fitness value is stored many times in the array, particularly when a new local optimum is found. To address this shortcoming, we propose to improve both the diversity of the accepted solutions and the diversity of values in the array through new acceptance and replacement strategies. The proposed Diversified Late Acceptance Search approach is shown to outperform the current state-of-the-art LAHC method on benchmark sets of Travelling Salesman Problem and Quadratic Assignment Problem instances.
