Small-World Optimization Algorithm for Function Optimization

  title={Small-World Optimization Algorithm for Function Optimization},
  author={Haifeng Du and Xiaodong Wu and Jian Zhuang},
Inspired by the mechanism of small-world phenomenon, some smallworld optimization operators, mainly including the local short-range searching operator and random long-range searching operator, are constructed in this paper. And a new optimization algorithm, Small-World Optimization Algorithm (SWOA) is explored. Compared with the corresponding Genetic Algorithms (GAs), the simulation experiment results of some complex functions optimization indicate that SWOA can enhance the diversity of the… CONTINUE READING
