Quadratic Assignment Problems model many applications in diverse areas such as operations research, parallel and distributed computing, and combinatorial data analysis. In this paper we survey some of the most important techniques, applications, and methods regarding the quadratic assignment problem. We focus our attention on recent developments. 1991 Mathematics Subject Classi cation. Primary 90B80, 90C20, 90C35, 90C27; Secondary 65H20, 65K05.

The Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) is one of the hardest combinatorial optimization problems known. Exact solution attempts proposed for instances of size larger than 15 have been generally unsuccessful even though successful implementations have been reported on some test problems from the QAPLIB up to size 36. In this dissertation, we analyze the binary structure of the QAP and present new IP formulations. We focus on “flow-based” formulations, strengthen the formulations with valid inequalities, and report computational experience with a branch-and-cut algorithm. Next, we present new classes of instances of the QAP that can be completely or partially reduced to the Linear Assignment Problem and give procedures to check whether or not an instance is an element of one of these classes. We also identify classes of instances of the Koopmans-Beckmann form of the QAP that are solvable in polynomial time. Lastly, we present a strong lower bound based on Bender’s decomposition.

The quadratic assignment problem (QAP) is one of the hardest combinatorial optimization problems known. Exact solution attempts proposed for instances of size larger than 15 have been generally unsuccessful even though successful implementations have been reported on some test problems from the QAPLIB up to size 36. In this study, we focus on the Koopmans–Beckmann formulation and exploit the structure of the flow and distance matrices based on a flow-based linearization technique that we propose.

The quadratic assignment problem (QAP) is an important problem in theory and practice. It was, which was introduced by Koopmans and Beckmann in 1957 [28] and is a model for many practical problems like backboard wiring [53], campus and hospital layout [15, 17], typewriter keyboard design [9], scheduling [23] and many others [16, 29] can be formulated as QAPs.

Abstract In the NP-complete quadratic assignment problem (QAP), n facilities are to be assigned to n sites at minimum cost. The contribution of assigning facility i to site k and facility j to site l to the total cost is f ij d kl, where f ij is the flow between facilities i and j, and d kl is the distance between sites k and l. Only very small (n≤ 20) instances of the QAP have been solved exactly, and heuristics are therefore used to produce approximate solutions.

Analysis of random instances of optimization problems provides valuable insights into the behavior and properties of problem's solutions, feasible region, and optimal values, especially in large-scale cases. A class of problems that have been studied extensively in the literature using the methods of probabilistic analysis is represented by the assignment problems, and many important problems in operations research and computer science can be formulated as assignment problems.

Abstract This paper aims at describing the state of the art on quadratic assignment problems (QAPs). It discusses the most important developments in all aspects of the QAP such as linearizations, QAP polyhedra, algorithms to solve the problem to optimality, heuristics, polynomially solvable special cases, and asymptotic behavior.

Seventy optimizers from a variety of disciplines met at the University of Waterloo, April 26-28, 2001, for a special workshop on the latest novel techniques for handling hard discrete optimization problems. Each of the three days started with an early breakfast at 7: 15AM; talks began at 8: 30AM and ended at 6PM; lunch was also provided on site to facilitate interaction and collaboration.
