The first half introduces constraint programming, which supplies excessive point positive aspects to declaratively version difficulties through constraints. It describes the most latest techniques for fixing constraint delight difficulties, together with whole tree seek techniques and metaheuristics, and exhibits how they are often built-in inside of constraint programming languages.

The moment half describes the ant colony optimization metaheuristic and illustrates its functions on varied constraint delight problems.
The 3rd half indicates how the ant colony can be built-in inside of a constraint programming language, therefore combining the expressive strength of constraint programming languages, to explain difficulties in a declarative means, and the fixing energy of ant colony optimization to successfully remedy those problems.
