Peer-to-peer (P2P) topology has significant influence on the performance, search efficiency and functionality, and scalability of the application. In this paper, we propose a Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) approach to the problem of Neighbor Selection (NS) in P2P Networks. Each particle encodes the upper half of the peer-connection matrix through the undirected graph, which reduces the search space dimension. The results indicate that PSO usually required shorter time to obtain better
