Abstract

In this work, we provide two heuristic algorithms for the matrix bandwidth reduction problem. The first is a genetic algorithm and the second uses node label adjustments. Experiments show these heuristics improve solution quality when compared with the well-known GPS algorithm and recently-developed methods using tabu search and GRASP with Path Relinking. Further, the node adjustment approach obtains solutions at speeds comparable to the fast GPS algorithm.
