Abstract

Hyper-heuristics are methodologies used to search the space of heuristics for solving computationally dicult problems. We describe an object-oriented domain analysis for hyper-heuristics that orthogonally decomposes the domain into generative policy components. The framework facilitates the recursive instantiation of hyper-heuristics over hyper-heuristics, allowing further exploration of the possibilities implied by the hyper-heuristic concept. We describe Hyperion, a JavaTM class library implementation of this domain analysis.
