Bi-Criterion Optimization with Multi Colony Ant Algorithms
TLDR
We propose a new approach to solve bi-criterion optimization problems with ant algorithms where several colonies of ants cooperate in finding good solutions. Expand

A Population Based Approach for ACO
TLDR
A population based ACO (Ant Colony Optimization) algorithm is proposed where (nearly) all pheromone information corresponds to solutions that are members of the actual population. Expand

A parameter-adaptive dynamic programming approach for inferring cophylogenies
TLDR
This paper introduces a new algorithm and a corresponding tool called CoRe-PA, that can be used to infer the common history of coevolutionary systems. Expand

A hierarchical particle swarm optimizer and its adaptive variant
TLDR
We introduce a hierarchical version of the particle swarm optimization (PSO) metaheuristic, called H-PSO, in which the particles are arranged in a dynamic hierarchy. Expand

Waiting Strategies for Dynamic Vehicle Routing
TLDR
We show that a proper waiting strategy can significantly increase the probability of being able to service the additional customer, at the same time reducing the average detour to serve that customer. Expand

Pheromone Modification Strategies for Ant Algorithms Applied to Dynamic TSP
TLDR
We investigate strategies for pheromone modification of ant algorithms in reaction to the insertion/deletion of a city of Traveling Salesperson Problem (TSP) instances. Expand

Reconstruction of the cophylogenetic history of related phylogenetic trees with divergence timing information
TLDR
We present a method and a corresponding tool called Tarzan for cophylogeny analysis of phylogenetic trees where the nodes are labelled with divergence timing information. Expand

Performance evaluation of artificial bee colony optimization and new selection schemes
TLDR
The artificial bee colony optimization (ABC) is a population-based algorithm for function optimization that is inspired by the foraging behavior of bees. Expand
