A novel memetic algorithm and its application to data clustering

  title={A novel memetic algorithm and its application to data clustering},
  author={JiaCheng Ni and Li Li and Fei Qiao and Qidi Wu},
  journal={Memetic Computing},
In this paper, a novel memetic algorithm (MA) named GS-MPSO is proposed by combining a particle swarm optimization (PSO) with a Gaussian mutation operator and a Simulated Annealing (SA)-based local search operator. In GS-MPSO, the particles are organized as a ring lattice. The Gaussian mutation operator is applied to the stagnant particles to prevent GS-MPSO trapping into local optima. The SA-based local search strategy is developed to combine with the cognition-only PSO model and perform a… CONTINUE READING
