Several techniques have been proposed to extend the particle swarm optimization (PSO) paradigm so that multiple optima can be located and maintained within a convoluted search space. A significant number of these implementations are subswarm-based, that is, portions of the swarm are optimized separately. Niches are formed to contain these subswarms, a(More)
Adapting a niching algorithm for dynamic environments is described. The Vector-Based Particle Swarm Optimizer locates multiple optima by identifying niches and optimizing them in parallel. To track optima effectively, information from previous results should be utilized in order to find optima after an environment change, with less effort than complete(More)
