A Copmarison of Particle Swarm Optimization and the Genetic Algorithm

  title={A Copmarison of Particle Swarm Optimization and the Genetic Algorithm},
  author={Rania Hassan and Babak Cohanim and Olivier L. de Weck and Gerhard Venter},
Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is a relatively recent heuristic search method whose mechanics are inspired by the swarming or collaborative behavior of biological populations. PSO is similar to the Genetic Algorithm (GA) in the sense that these two evolutionary heuristics are population-based search methods. In other words, PSO and the GA move from a set of points (population) to another set of points in a single iteration with likely improvement using a combination of deterministic and… CONTINUE READING
