In recent years, memetic algorithms (MAs) have been proposed to enhance the performance of evolutionary algorithms by incorporating local search techniques with evolutionary algorithms' global search ability, and applied successfully to solve different type of optimization problems. This paper proposes a new memetic algorithm and then introduces an agent-based memetic algorithm (AMA), for the first time, to further enhance the ability of MA in solving constrained optimization problems.
