Application of Multi-Core Parallel Programming to a Combination of Ant Colony Optimization and Genetic Algorithm


This Paper will deal with a combination of Ant Colony and Genetic Programming Algorithm to optimize Travelling Salesmen problem (NP-Hard). However, the complexity of the algorithm requires considerable computational time and resources. Parallel implementation can reduce the computational time. In this paper, emphasis in the parallelizing section is given to Multi-core architecture and Multi-Processor Systems which is developed and used almost everywhere today and hence, multi-core parallelization to the combination of algorithm is achieved by OpenMP library by Intel Corporation.
Keywords: Ant Colony Optimization, Genetic Algorithm, Multi-core, Parallel Programming, Travelling Salesmen Problem
