Abstract: A tree $t$-spanner of a given connected graph is a spanning tree $T$ in which the ratio of distance between every pair of vertices is at most $t$ times their distance in the graph, where $t$ is a parameter known as stretch factor of $T$. The tree $t$-spanner problem deals with finding a spanning tree in a connected graph whose stretch factor is minimum amongst all spanning trees of the graph. For unweighted graph, this problem is $\mathcal{NP}$-Hard for any fixed $t \geq 4$, whereas for weighted graph, this problem is $\mathcal{NP}$-Hard for any fixed ~ $t > 1$. This paper concerns this problem for connected, undirected, and weighted graph and proposes three variants of ant colony optimization (ACO) approach for this problem. ACO approach is a swarm intelligence technique inspired by the foraging behavior of real ants. All three variants of ACO approach have been tested on a set of randomly generated graph instances. Computational results show the effectiveness of all three variants o f ACO approach. (More)
