Abstract

In this paper, swarm activity is defined as the root mean square velocity of the particles in Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). A new method for determining the numerical stability of PSO based on swarm activity was developed. Using the results of a numerical stability analysis of PSO, the search of conventional PSO methods is examined. From this analysis, issues related to diversification and intensification during the search can be explored.
