Combinatorial optimization is a topic in theoretical computer science and applied mathematics that consists of finding the least-cost solution to a mathematical problem of the real life in which each solution is associated with a numerical cost. Combinatorial Optimization Problems (COPs) can be viewed as searching for the best element of some set of discrete items, therefore, in principle, any sort of search algorithm or meta-heuristic can be used to solve them. Some related areas with COPs are: A. The design of networks, the minimization of route cost and others. B. The storage and recovery, the maximization of the distribution of packets to obtain lower costs to storage and others. C. The scheduling of manufacturing process, project scheduling, and others.
The goal pursued in this Special Issue is to create a volume of recent work on advances in all aspects of solves Combinatorial Optimization Problems. The particular topics which are of interest for this special journal issue include, but are not limited to:
* New Combinatorial Optimization Problems (COPs).
* Meta-heuristics and heuristics to solve COPs.
* Evolutionary Algorithms to solve COPs.
* Neural Networks to solve COPs.
* Hybrid Algorithms to solve COPs.
* Applied Informatics to solve COPs.
* Bio-Inspired Algorithms to solve COPs.
* Artificial Intelligence to solve COPs.
* Software Engineering to solve COPs.
