Simulated annealing was one of the algorithms I considered for Tablix,
because some people from my university suggested that it might be
better for solving timetable problems than genetic algorithms. At the
end I decided to go with genetic algorithm because I understood it
better (I studied biology and genetics in highschool at that time).

Great. I'll have a look when I'll have some more time (I'm not really
fluent in Java). I have been playing with the thought of making Tablix
even more modular, so that you can replace the whole genetic algorithm
with some other algorithm for multivariable optimization.

I'm really looking forward to this cooperation. If you have any
questions please feel free to ask.

Best regards and best of luck with your project
