Optimization Algorithms Utilized in This Book
The main features and rules of the optimization algorithms utilized in this book are explained in this chapter. These algorithms consist of Colliding Bodies Optimization (CBO), Enhanced Colliding Bodies Optimization (ECBO), Vibrating Particles System (VPS) and a hybrid algorithm called MDVC-UVPS. All of the algorithms considered here are recently developed and are multi-agent meta-heuristic methods. These algorithms start with a set of randomly selected candidate solutions of the optimization problem and according to a series of simple rules, mainly inspired by the nature, the existing solutions are perturbed iteratively in order to improve their cost function values.
