Evolving an edge selection formula for ant colony optimization

  title={Evolving an edge selection formula for ant colony optimization},
  author={Andrew Runka},
This project utilizes the evolutionary process found in Genetic Programming to evolve an improved decision formula for the Ant System algorithm. Two such improved formulae are discovered, one which uses the typical roulette wheel selection found in all well-known Ant Colony Optimization algorithms, and one which uses a greedy-style selection mechanism. The evolution of each formula is trained using the Ant System algorithm to solve a small Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP) and tested using… CONTINUE READING
