Understanding the Pheromone System Within Ant Colony Optimization
Abstract. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is a collection of metaheuristics inspired by foraging in ant colonies, whose aim is to solve combinatorial optimization problems. We identify some principles behind the metaheuristics’ rules; and we show that ensuring their application, as a correction to a published algorithm for the vertex cover problem, leads to a statistically significant improvement in empirical results.
