Inspired from the competition of sport teams in a sport league, an algorithm is presented for solving constrained optimization problems. A number of individuals (solutions) as sport teams compete in an artificial league for several weeks (iterations). Based on the league schedule in each week, teams play in pairs and their game outcome is determined in terms of win or loss, given known the playing strength (fitness value) along with the teams' intended formations. Modeling an artificial match… CONTINUE READING
