With the developments of industry and economics, many new problems are brought up with nondifferential, multimodal, and high-dimensional characters. To solve these problems efficiently and accurately, scientists propose stochastic optimization methods. Up to now, many optimization algorithms have been developed, such as genetic algorithm, firefly algorithm (Yang, 2010), group search optimizer (He, 2010), Krill herd (Gandomi and Alavi, 2012), seeker optimization algorithm (Dai et al., 2009), artificial physics optimization (Xie et al., ...
