Two novel extensions for the well known Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) framework are introduced here, which allow the solution of Mixed Integer Nonlinear Programs (MINLP). Furthermore, a hybrid implementation (ACOmi) based on this extended ACO framework, specially developed for complex non-convex MINLPs, is presented together with numerical results. These(More)
A new and universal penalty method is introduced in this contribution. It is especially intended to be applied in stochastic metaheuristics like genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization or ant colony optimization. The novelty of this method is, that it is an advanced approach that only requires one parameter to be tuned. Moreover this parameter,(More)
