## Implementation of a Hybrid Simulated Annealing Algorithm for Solving the Three-Dimensional Boxing Problem MATLAB

As I need to solve a three-dimensional packing problem in mathematical modeling, I have selected the paper “Hybrid Simulated Annealing Algorithm for Solving Three-Dimensional Packing Problems” published by Prof. Zhang Defu et al. in the Journal of Computing as the theoretical basis of the problem after searching. The abstract of the paper is as follows: A hybrid simulated annealing algorithm for efficiently solving the Three Dimensional Container Loading Problem 3D-CLP is proposed . The Three Dimensional Container Loading Problem (3D-CLP) requires loading a subset of a given set of boxes into a container such that the total volume of the loaded boxes is maximized. The hybrid simulated annealing algorithm presented in this paper is based on three important algorithms: (1) the composite block generation algorithm, which differs from … Read more
