Hybrid Optimization

Hybrid optimization is a set of multi-disciplinary approaches for solving decision and optimization problems that merge constraint reasoning, applied mathematics, computational logics, metaheuristics and statistics. The motivations for using hybrid optimization is that real problems present a very complex structure, with side  constraints and uncertain data and are composed by distinct, yet tightly connected subproblems. Thus, a single approach is in general ineffective and hybrid solvers are more effective.
