K. Socha and M. Dorigo. Ant Colony Optimization for Mixed-Variable Optimization Problems. Technical Report TR/IRIDIA/2007-019, IRIDIA, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium, October 2007.

Abstract

In this paper, we show how ant colony optimization (ACO) may be used for tack- ling mixed-variable optimization problems.We show how a version of ACO extended to continuous domains (ACOR) may be further used for mixed-variable problems. We present di®erent approaches to handling mixed-variable optimization problems and explain their possible uses. We propose a new mixed-variable benchmark prob- lem. Finally, we compare the results obtained to those reported in the literature for various real-world mixed-variable optimization problems.
