A new diversity guided particle swarm optimization with mutation
2009 World Congress on Nature & Biologically Inspired Computing (NaBIC)
This paper presents a new diversity guided Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm (PSO) named Beta Mutation PSO or BMPSO for solving global optimization problems. The BMPSO algorithm makes use of an evolutionary programming based mutation operator to maintain the level of diversity in the swarm population, thereby maintaining a good balance between the exploration and exploitation phenomena and preventing premature convergence. Beta distribution is used to perform the mutation in the proposeddoi:10.1109/nabic.2009.5393723 dblp:conf/nabic/ThangarajPA09 fatcat:cq45sefxdvdgnlodwh6v3ft4t4
