This research aims to examine teachers’ general cynicism inclinations in respect to some variables and life satisfaction level and the relevance of these inclinations with gender, relationship status and membership of a union. Research is carried out using relational inquiry module and the study group of it constituted of 395 primary school teachers who are working in Ankara during academic year of 2012-2013 and selected with the help of modeling of inordinate set. The data are collected with “The Scale of Life Satisfaction” and tested by making use of multiple regression technique. Whether the differentiation levels of teachers’ general cynicism inclinations are related with their genders, relationship status and their membership of a union are analyzed using T test. As a result, male teachers have higher degree of cynicism in cognitive dimension than female teachers. Moreover, these general cynicism inclinations in cognitive, affective and behavioral dimensions do not differ greatly according to teachers’ membership of a union and relationship status. It is observed that the cognitive and affective dimensions of general cynicism inclinations have negative-sided relation with teachers’ life satisfaction rates.
Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) is one of the
most widely studied real world problems of finding the shortest (minimum cost)
possible route that visits each node in a given set of nodes (cities) once and then
returns to origin city. The optimization of cuboid areas has potential samples that
can be adapted to real world. Cuboid surfaces of buildings, rooms, furniture etc.
can be given as examples. Many optimization algorithms have been used in solution
of optimization problems at present. Among them, meta-heuristic algorithms come
first. In this study, ant colony optimization, one of meta-heuristic methods, is
applied to solve Euclidian TSP consisting of nine different sized sets of nodes
randomly placed on a cuboid surface. The performance of this method is shown in
