Most Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithms are able to find a single (or few) optimal, or near-optimal, solutions to difficult (NP-hard) problems. An issue though is that a small change to the problem can have a large impact on a specific solution by decreasing its quality, or worse still, by rendering it infeasible. Niching methods, such as fitness… (More)
