In this paper, we have proposed two novel algorithms based on Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) for finding near-optimal solutions for the Multi-dimensional Multi-choice Knapsack Problem (MMKP). MMKP is a discrete optimization problem, which is a variant of the classical 0-1 Knapsack Problem and is also an NP-hard problem. Due to its high computational(More)
The Vehicle Routing Problem with Time Windows (VRPTW) is to serve a set of customer demands with time constraints and vehicle with limited capacity. This has practical applications in container truck routing, delivery service scheduling, garbage collection, fleet network design etc. In this paper, we consider one of its variants where the time constraint is(More)
In this paper, an attempt has been made to investigate the impact of free space transfer function taking into effects of atmospheric turbulence, pointing errors and path loss factor on the performance of free space optical communication system. The performance of the proposed free space optical communication system is studied by developing a MATLAB(More)

Curcumin and bovine serum albumin (BSA) were used as model drugs and loaded into microand nanoparticles of biodegradable poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA). The PLGA was incorporated into hydrophilic and biocompatible gelatin scaffolds to design a controlled drug release system. The gelatin scaffolds were cross-linked using glutaraldehyde. The controlled(More)
