    Job scheduling is a type of combinatorial optimization problem. In this paper, we propose a Hybrid algorithm which combines the merits of ACO and Cuckoo Search. The major problem in the ACO is that, the ant will walk through the path where the chemical substances called pheromone is deposited....
