Abstract: This paper implements clustering algorithm to the convergence of solution space for large sets of text documents and applies retrieval methodologies to find the information of interest. We propose tabu annealing, a heuristic approach which is a combination of tabu search and simulated annealing with clustering approach. The results of the proposed approach are superior to simulated annealing and tabu search in terms of precision, recall, F-measure, mean fitness, search space and time complexity.

Keywords: tabu search; simulated annealing; heuristic approach; solution space; clustering algorithms; text documents; document retrieval; information retrieval; tabu annealing.
