An Overview

Xin-She Yang and Mehmet Karamanoglu,    Department of Design Engineering and Mathematics, School of Science and Technology, Middlesex University, The Burroughs, London, UK

1.1 Introduction

Swarm intelligence (SI), bio-inspired computation in general, has attracted great interest in the last two decades, and many SI-based optimization algorithms have gained huge popularity. There are many reasons for such popularity and attention, and two main reasons are probably that these SI-based algorithms are flexible and versatile, and that they are very efficient in solving nonlinear design problems with real-world applications. Bio-inspired computation has permeated into almost all areas ...
