We propose a synergistic approach to meta-heuristic search optimization algorithm. The fine balance between intensification (exploitation) and diversification (exploration) is very important to the overall efficiency and performance of a meta-heuristic search algorithm. Too little exploration and too much exploitation could cause the system to be trapped in local optima, which makes it very difficult or even impossible to find the global optimum. The diversification via randomization provides a…
