In this M-file, the implementation of ACO Algorithm is given with the support of reference papers listed. You can easily use it as following command to see the pictures of result and the playing iterative course.
filename.tsp is the problem file of the Symmetrical or Asymmetrical TSP problem which you can download from the following site: http://elib.zib.de/pub/mp-testdata/tsp/tsplib/tsp/index.html
As there is several type of ACO algorithm, the basic one Ant System(AS) is given, which is original. For more problems or other ACO algorithms, you can contact me by the email firstname.lastname@example.org. plealse make me known if you want to use it commercially.
And many thanks for Doug Hull's advice!

The code was updated to play the iterative course so the audience can understand ACO easily, and some errors in the commentary were correct!
