Review of ACO and ILP by Albert Zündorf
T read both papers. For execution I rely on the results of the benchmark execution already given.
I like the ACO solution very much. I am not really sure whether I got all the details but the idea of having 'pheromones' guiding the exploration towards promising areas seems to be quite appropriate for the given case.
The ILP solution ofcourse works great, too.
However, just from my feelings the ACO approach seems to be the better fit for the given problem.
