The social foraging behavior of Escherichia coli bacteria has been used to solve optimization problems. This paper proposes a hybrid approach involving genetic algorithms (GA) and bacterial foraging (BF) algorithms for function optimization problems. We first illustrate the proposed method using four test functions and the performance of the algorithm is studied with an emphasis on mutation, crossover, variation of step sizes, chemotactic steps, and the lifetime of the bacteria. The proposed… CONTINUE READING
