Linear array synthesis using an ant-colony-optimization-based algorithm

  title={Linear array synthesis using an ant-colony-optimization-based algorithm},
  author={E. Rajo-lglesias and Ox0301 Quevedo-Teruel},
  journal={IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine},
The aim of this work is to show the use of a well-known type of evolutionary computational optimization technique, ant colony optimization (ACO), in a typical electromagnetic problem: linear array synthesis. To this aim, an algorithm based on the fundamentals of ant colony optimization has been developed. The algorithm uses real numbers. Some examples using different optimization criteria are presented. Also, some guidelines for the use of the algorithm, especially for creating the desirability… CONTINUE READING
