Some Generic Algorithmic Ideas

The performance of an algorithm/solver can be impacted by various factors, but the most essential factor is the algorithmic ideas in it. These ideas (can be called methods, strategies, heuristics) are usually on a higher level than concrete algorithms, and may find applications in other algorithms and other problems.

I have proposed some generic algorithmic ideas, which are mainly used in local search algorithms, and some can also be applied to other types of algorithms.
