Abstract Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is an optimization heuristic for solving combinatorial optimization problems and it is inspired by the swarming behavior of foraging ants. ACO has been successfully applied in various domains, such as routing and scheduling. In particular, the agents, called ants here, are very efficient at sampling the problem space and quickly finding good solutions. Motivated by the advantages of ACO in combinatorial optimization, we develop a novel framework for finding optimal contr…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
