Review of meta-heuristics and generalised evolutionary walk algorithm

  title={Review of meta-heuristics and generalised evolutionary walk algorithm},
  author={Xin-She Yang},
Metaheuristic algorithms are often nature-inspired, and they are becoming very powerful in solving global optimization problems. More than a dozen of major metaheuristic algorithms have been developed over the last three decades, and there exist even more variants and hybrid of metaheuristics. This paper intends to provide an overview of nature-inspired metaheuristic algorithms, from a brief history to their applications. We try to analyze the main components of these algorithms and how and why… CONTINUE READING
