Distribution, Cooperation and Hybridisation for Combinatorial Optimization

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In the literature there is a growing evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of object-oriented frameworks in assisting software development. Furthermore, object-oriented frameworks may not only improve the development process of software, but can also improve the quality and maintainability of software. This chapter looks at the Templar framework from the University of East Anglia, UK, with a specific interest in distribution, hybridization, and cooperation.
