Cuckoo search (CS) is one of the most recent population-based meta-heuristics. CS algorithm is based on the cuckoo's behaviour and the mechanism of Lévy flights. Unfortunately, the standard CS algorithm is proposed only for continuous optimisation problems. In this paper, we propose a discrete binary cuckoo search (BCS) algorithm in order to deal with binary optimisation problems. To get binary solutions, we have used a sigmoid function similar to that used in the binary particle swarmdoi:10.1504/ijbic.2012.048063 fatcat:itdsusbro5e3fo4bg3cm4avcgq
