A Gaussian Firefly Algorithm

  title={A Gaussian Firefly Algorithm},
  author={Sh. M. Farahani and Azam Amin Abshouri and Babak Nasiri and Mohammad Reza Meybodi},
Firefly algorithm is one of the evolutionary optimization algorithms, and is inspired by fireflies behavior in nature. Each firefly movement is based on absorption of the other one. In this paper to stabilize firefly’s movement, it is proposed a new behavior to direct fireflies movement to global best if there was no any better solution around them. In addition to increase convergence speed it is proposed to use Gaussian distribution to move all fireflies to global best in each iteration… CONTINUE READING
