SAL Home NUMERICS Optimization


To investigate real-world combinatorial optimization problems, we have designed and partly implemented the StarFLIP++ family of C++ libraries, especially focusing on reusability and applicability for a wide range of combinatorial problems.

StarFLIP++ will ultimately be composed of the following layered sub-libraries:

  • the fuzzy logic inference processor library, FLIP++
  • the fuzzy constraint library, ConFLIP++
  • the dynamic constraint generation library, DynaFLIP++
  • the domain knowledge representation library DomFLIP++
  • several heuristic optimizing libraries (currently tabu search and genetic algorithm),
  • OptiFLIP++
  • the userinterface, InterFLIP++, with platform support for X-Windows (XView/Open
  • Look, Motif) and MS Windows 3.1/95/NT
  • the HTML documentation (end-user/knowledge-engineer/programmer), DocuFLIP++
  • the knowledge-change consistency checker library, CheckFLIP++
  • the version-control and test environment for the complete library set, TestFLIP++
  • the simulation toolkit, SimFLIP++
  • the reactive optimizer, ReaFLIP++
  • the neural network extension that allows automatic tuning of fuzzy membership functions,
  • NeuroFLIP++
