By Chris Sells, Ian Griffiths

This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the fifth overseas Workshop on Ant Colony Optimization and Swarm Intelligence, ANTS 2006, held in Brussels, Belgium, in September 2006.

The 27 revised complete papers, 23 revised brief papers, and 12 prolonged abstracts offered have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from one hundred fifteen submissions. The papers are dedicated to theoretical and foundational elements of ant algorithms, evolutionary optimization, ant colony optimization, and swarm intelligence and take care of a vast number of optimization purposes in networking, operations learn, multiagent platforms, robotic platforms, networking, and so forth.

Sample text

For instance, if delay is used, the ant needs to incrementally calculate at each node a robust estimate of the expected delay to reach the destination. 3 Proactive Path Maintenance and Exploration During the course of a communication session, source nodes periodically send out proactive forward ants to update the information about currently used paths and try to find new and better paths. They follow pheromone and update pheromone tables in the same way as reactive forward ants. Such continuous proactive sampling of paths is the typical mode of operation in ACO routing algorithms.

This algorithm allows function y = f (c) to be calculated with the use of the path choice model described by (6), for managing real size networks based on three phases: path generation, weight calculation and network loading. In the first phase, a shortest tree algorithm from each destination node d is performed in order to associate to each node i a value Zd,i that expresses the cost of reaching the destination node d. A link l = (i, j) can be considered for a feasible path only if Zd,i > Zd,j .

Since AntHocNet only maintains information about destinations which are active in a communication session, and the neighbors of a node change continually, the filling of the pheromone tables is sparse and dynamic. , can be used to define the goodness of a path. AntHocNet makes use of a combination of these metrics to define the pheromone variables. 1. 2 F. A. M. Gambardella Reactive Path Setup When a source node s starts a communication session with a destination node d, and it does not have routing information for d, it broadcasts a reactive forward ant.
