Book Description:
Ant colony optimization is a population-based general-search technique that can be used for the solution of difficult combinatorial problems. Ant colony optimization uses the knowledge-reinforcing mechanism used by real-life ants while traversing possible paths in search of food, depositing a chemical substance (called pheromone), en-route and subsequently forming trails which can then be followed by other ants in the colony. With its strong mathematical foundation and its simplicity of use, ant colony optimization provides an alternative method to routing optimizations with a wide range of applications. This book presents topical research in the study of ant colonies, their behavior and application in computer technologies. (Imprint: Nova)
