In this paper, we put forward a hybrid approach based on the life cycle for the artificial bee colony algorithm to generate dynamical varying population as well as ensure appropriate balance between exploration and exploitation. The bee life-cycle model is firstly constructed, which means that each individual can reproduce or die dynamically throughout the searching process and population size can dynamically vary during execution. With the comprehensive learning, the bees incorporate the… CONTINUE READING
