I discussed my Ph.D. dissertion at the
Université Libre de
Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium, in 2004.
Prof. Marco Dorigo
has been my supervisor. The thesis is an outgrowth of my research
work from 1998 to 2004 on the foundations of the Ant Colony
Oprimization metaheuristic and on its application to routing
problems in dynamic telecommunication networks. During those
years I had post-doc research positions in several laboratories,
namely, IRIDIA, in Brussels (Belgium),
Telecommunications Research Institute), in Kyoto (Japan), and
IDSIA, in Lugano (Switzerland).
The thesis provides original contributions for a number of topics:
