Ant colony optimization is a metaheuristic which has been effectively utilized to a variety of combinatorial optimization difficulties. the writer describes this metaheuristic and reviews its potency for fixing a few difficult combinatorial difficulties, with a selected specialize in constraint programming. The textual content is geared up into 3 elements.

The first half introduces constraint programming, which gives excessive point good points to declaratively version difficulties via constraints. It describes the most latest methods for fixing constraint pride difficulties, together with entire tree seek ways and metaheuristics, and exhibits how they are often built-in inside constraint programming languages.

The moment half describes the ant colony optimization metaheuristic and illustrates its functions on assorted constraint pride problems.
The 3rd half indicates how the ant colony should be built-in inside a constraint programming language, therefore combining the expressive strength of constraint programming languages, to explain difficulties in a declarative means, and the fixing strength of ant colony optimization to successfully resolve those problems.
