The optimization of nonlinear functions using particle swarm methodology is described. Implementations of two paradigms are discussed and compared, including a recently developed locally oriented paradigm. Benchmark testing of both paradigms is described, and applications, including neural network training and robot task learning, are proposed. Relationships between particle swarm optimization and both artificial life and evolutionary computation are reviewed. 
Cooperative learning in neural networks using particle swarm optimizers
This paper presents a method to employ particle swarms optimizers in a cooperative configuration. This is achieved by splitting the input vector into several sub-vectors, each which is optimizedExpand
