Originally, learning automata (LAs) were introduced to describe human behavior from both a biological and psychological point of view. In this paper, we show that a set of interconnected LAs is also able to describe the behavior of an ant colony, capable of finding the shortest path from their nest to food sources and back. The field of ant colony optimization (ACO) models ant colony behavior using artificial ant algorithms. These algorithms find applications in a whole range of optimization… CONTINUE READING
