Abstract: In this paper, we present a heuristic which derives a feasible solution for the Multiple Knapsack Problem (MKP). The proposed heuristic called RCH, is a recursive method that performs computation on the core of knapsacks. The RCH heuristic is compared with the MTHM heuristic of Martello and Toth. Computational results on randomly generated instances show that the proposed approach gives better gap and smaller restitution times.
