I am currently preparing to write my Bachelorxc2xb4s Thesis on Improving heuristically created solutions to optimiziation problems with stochastic local search.
For this I already found instances of mixed graphs (with directed and undirected edges) stored in .dat files.
My question is now: How do I use these files in Java? (sorry I only have basic Java knowledge) I want to test local search methods on all these instances so do I store them in Objects? They are quit a lot so is there a method to maybe create a library of graphs and then execute the algorithms on the whole library?
Thanks for your help!
