Part of the Algorithms for Intelligent Systems book series (AIS)


This section presents, discusses and analyses the results of the proposed improved PSO and MOPSO. A variety of test functions with different characteristics and difficulties are employed to efficiently benchmark the performance of the proposed PSO\(+\)EPD and MOPSO\(+\)EPD algorithms. The results are collected and presented quantitatively and qualitatively.
