Application of ontologies in peer-to-peer database with routing queries based on ant colony algorithm
A significant set of information stored in different databases around the world, can be shared through peer-topeer databases. With that, is obtained a large base of knowledge, without the need for large investments because ...
Influência do ambiente no desenvolvimento de colônias iniciais de formigas cortadeiras (Atta sexdens rubropilosa)
Annually, mature colonies of Atta ants produce winged males and females, where leave the colony in which they were produced to form new colonies and thus continue the species perpetuation. The foundation of Atta spp. ...
MULTIPLE ANT COLONY SYSTEM FOR A VRP WITH TIME WINDOWS AND SCHEDULED LOADING

Nest architecture and population dynamics of the ponerine ant Ectatomma edentatum (Hymenoptera, Formicidae)
Twelve nests of Ectatomma edentatum (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) were collected from January to December 1996, in Rio Claro, SP, southeastern Brazil. This species excavates their nests up to 1, 10m deep, containing 2, 3, or ...
A modified ant colony optimization algorithm modeled on tabu-search methods
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2006-04-01)
An earlier model underlying the foraging strategy of a pachycodyla apicalis ant is modified. The proposed algorithm incorporates key features of the tabu-search method in the development of a relatively simple but robust ...
