This paper proposes a new variant of the PSO algorithm named Complex Neighborhood Particle Swarm Optimizer (CNPSO) for solving global optimization problems. In the CNPSO, the neighborhood of the particles is organized through a complex network which is modified during the search process. This evolution of the topology seeks to improve the influence of the… CONTINUE READING
