In order to improve the weak situation of the global search ability, the stability and time consuming of optimization of differential evolution(DE) algorithm in solving high dimensional optimization problem, an improved differential evolution algorithm with multi-population and multi-strategy(MPMSIDE) is proposed to solve high dimensional optimization problem. Firstly, the different DE mutation strategies are studied. Then the MPMSIDE algorithm divides the population into several

And the improved mutation strategy and local optimization strategy are introduced to raise and balance the global searching ability and local searching ability, and improve the optimization efficiency. The selfadaptive update strategy is used to adjust the scaling factor and crossover factor for making the parameter sensitivity of DE algorithm and improving the stability and robustness. Finally, the proposed MPMSIDE algorithm is applied to standard test function optimization for verifying the effectiveness. The experimental results show that the proposed MPMSIDE algorithm has a relatively better optimization performance for solving complex optimization problem, and takes on remarkable optimizing ability, higher searching accuracy and faster convergence speed.
