This paper presents a new variant of Basic Particle Swarm Optimization (BPSO) algorithm named QI-PSO for solving global optimization problems. The QI-PSO algorithm makes use of a multiparent, quadratic crossover/reproduction operator defined by us in the BPSO algorithm. The proposed algorithm is compared it with BPSO and the numerical results show that QI-PSO outperforms the BPSO algorithm in all the sixteen cases taken in this study.
