S-shaped versus V-shaped transfer functions for binary Particle Swarm Optimization

  title={S-shaped versus V-shaped transfer functions for binary Particle Swarm Optimization},
  author={Seyed Mohammad Mirjalili and Andrew Lewis},
  journal={Swarm and Evolutionary Computation},
Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is one of the most widely used heuristic algorithms. The simplicity and inexpensive computational cost make this algorithm very popular and powerful in solving a wide range of problems. The binary version of this algorithm has been introduced for solving binary problems. The main part of the binary version is a transfer function which is responsible to map a continuous search space to a discrete search space. Currently there appears to be insufficient focus on… CONTINUE READING
