Can we measure the difficulty of an optimization problem?

Alpcan, Tansu; Everitt, Tom; Hutter, Marcus


an we measure the difficulty of an optimization problem? Although optimization plays a crucial role in modern science and technology, a formal framework that puts problems and solution algorithms into a broader context has not been established. This paper presents a conceptual approach which gives a positive answer to the question for a broad class of optimization problems. Adopting an information and computational perspective, the proposed framework builds upon Shannon and algorithmic...[Show more]
