    Most ant species are social insects, living in large cooperative groups called colonies. Two or more generations may overlap in a colony. These ant colonies are divided into three castes — males, workers and queens — and each caste perform certain tasks. Queen ants and males are part of the reproductive castes. They are the most important members of a colony because they ensure the survival of their species. Queen ants, regardless of species, often are larger than other members of their colonies. Queen ants also have thicker bodies, making them easily distinguishable. The abdomens of queen ants are larger than those of other ants, and they possess wing muscles specific to their caste. The majority of queen ants’ eggs grow up to…

    The Ants, a short story written in 1986, shows similarities to another document: The First History of Brazil from 1587. Additionally, the story also shows similarities to Jungian psychology with regard to the dwarf. The ants in the short story are rebuilding the dwarf skeleton, which can be read as the girls’ fear of exploring their own unconsciousness and inner beings. At the beginning of the story, The Ants, there are two young girls who find a dwarf skeleton that had been hidden by an old…

    MORAL DILEMMA Ant and Grasshopper Stephanie Gardner Should the ant give food to the grasshopper? Yes and no. Now I say both for a variety of different reasons. I have a feeling that the ant in this situation is not mean enough to just let the grasshopper go hungry. But is the grasshopper allowed to just get off without any punishment for not working hard? This is a classic argument of mercy verses justice. The ant can't show the grasshopper the mercy that he desires and at the same time have…

    What separated the Ant from the Grasshopper was the Ant’s refusal to live in the now. Its animalistic nature to survive compelled the Ant to work diligently to store a supply of nourishment for the winter season again. On the other hand, the Grasshopper enjoyed feeling “alive” (Conklin, 2010, p. 60) and conducted himself in a recreational manner, though he witnessed the Ant’s effort to labor for its future. “Why bother about winter?” said the Grasshopper; “we have got plenty of food at present”…

    Society is a monarchy, with different levels of “power”. With the Queen’s Society, the ants were assigned different tasks. Near the beginning of the movie, you can see worker ants digging a tunnel. These ants were assigned the job a “worker ant”. The “worker ant” is in my opinion the lowest level of power in the society. There were also soldier ants shown throughout the movie. On a higher level, there is The General and his accomplices. This is the most successful society because ants…

    Ant colony algorithm has three steps: pheromone initialization, building tour, updating pheromone.For the ant colony algorithm, path selection influence a little by the pheromone initialization. In order to get a better result, the pheromone value is always initialized slightly higher than the one released in each iteration.We have taken the initial value of pheromone as τij(0)= m/Cmin where , τij(t) is the residual pheromone on the path between node i and node j at moment t. m is the number of…
