Аннотация: Authors consider multi-source location problems, k-means, k-median and k-medoid. Such problems are popular models in logistics (optimal location of factories, warehouses, transportation hubs etc.) and cluster analysis, approximation theory, estimation theory, image recognition. Various distance metrics and gauges allow using these Показать полностьюmodels for clustering various kinds of data: continuous and discrete numeric data, Boolean vectors, documents. Wide area of application of such problems leads to growing interest of researchers in Russia and worldwide. In this paper, the authors propose a new heuristic method for solving such problems which can be used as a standalone local search method (local search multi-start) or as the main part of a new algorithm based on ideas of the probability changing method. For the parameters self-tuning of such algorithm, the authors propose new meta-heuristic which allows using new algorithm without learning specific features of each solved problem. Algorithms were tested on various data sets of size up to 160000 data vectors from the UCI repository and real data of semiconductor devices examination. For testing purposes, various distance metrics were used. Computational experiments showed the high efficiency of new algorithms in comparison with local search methods used traditionally for the considered problems. In addition, results were compared with the evolutionary methods and a deterministic algorithm based on the Information Bottleneck Clustering method. Such comparison illustrated the ability of new algorithms to reach higher preciseness of the results in reasonable time.
