In this paper, we propose a novel evolutionary computing method which is called quantum-inspired electromagnetism-like mechanism (QEM) to solve 0/1 knapsack problem. QEM is based on the electromagnetism theory and using the characteristic of quantum computing. It can rapidly and efficiently find out the optimal solution of combination optimization problem. We compare the conventional genetic algorithm (CGA), quantum-inspired genetic algorithm (QGA), quantum-inspired electromagnetism-like mechanism algorithm (…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
