In this paper, a new memetic algorithm, which combines PSO and local search technique, is proposed for mul-timodal optimization problems. In the investigated algorithm, a local PSO model is used to disperse the individuals into different sub-regions, an adaptive local search method is employed to refine the quality of individuals and a triggered re-initialization scheme is introduced to enhance the algorithm's capacity of solving functions with numerous optima. Experimental results based on a… CONTINUE READING
