A genetic algorithm for maximum-weighted tree matching problem

In hierarchal organizations, for assigning tasks to the divisions of the organization some constraints must be satisfied. This article investigates one such problem in which there are k different tasks to be accomplished and each division's performance on each task may be different and represented by a scalar value. In this article we formally introduce this real life decision problem, named as Maximum-Weighted Tree Matching Problem, and propose a genetic algorithm solution to it, and give some experimental results.
