Abstract

This paper introduces AntLib, an Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) framework. C++ developed; it is a generic framework that can be applied with almost no adaptations to any combinatorial optimization problem. AntLib is a reusable object oriented framework, based on several well known design patterns [2].
