This paper applies the imperialist competitive algorithm (ICA) to benchmark mathematical functions with the original method to analyze and perform a study of the variation of the results obtained with the ICA algorithm as we vary the parameters manually for 4 mathematical functions. The results demonstrate the efficiency of the algorithm to optimization problems and give us the pattern for future work in dynamically adapting these parameters.
