This paper presents a general optimization model gleaned ideas from root growth behaviours in the soil. The purpose of the study is to investigate a novel biologically inspired methodology for complex system modelling and computation, particularly for optimization of higherdimensional numerical function. For this study, a mathematical framework and architecture are designed to model root growth patterns of plant. Under this architecture, the interactions between the soil and root growth are… CONTINUE READING
