Cuckoo search (CS) is an efficient swarm-intelligence-based algorithm and significant developments have been made since its introduction in 2009. CS has many advantages due to its simplicity and efficiency in solving highly non-linear optimisation problems with real-world engineering applications. This paper provides a timely review of all the state-of-the-art developments in the last five years, including the discussions of theoretical background and research directions for future development…
