Yeah!!!!! I’ve finally completed the first draft of my thesis. Other than a final review looking for awkwardly worded verbiage, I’ve completed my first draft and it’s ready to be handed over to my committee for their review. Yeah!!! My topic is on comparing a standard deterministic air vehicle routing algorithms (Bellman-Ford and A*) against one that I’ve developed myself. My algorithm uses Simulated Annealing with waypoints defined as target cluster centers with a deterministic algorithm such as Bellman-Ford determining the distance between the cluster centers. I hope to complete it over the course of the summer and finally be done with it.
