Despite the intense research focused on the investigation of the functioning settings of Particle Swarm Optimization, the particles initialization functions - determining the initial positions in the search space - are generally ignored, especially in the case of real-world applications. As a matter of fact, almost all works exploit uniform distributions to randomly generate the particles coordinates. In this article, we analyze the impact on the optimization performances of alternative… CONTINUE READING
