Description: Optimization algorithm very good book, detailing the ant colony algorithm and particle swarm optimization and related matlab toolbox, talked about the theory and application are given toolbox download address. Swarm intelligence is an innovative computational way to solve hard problems. In particular, particle swarm optimization, also commonly known as PSO, mimics the behavior of a swarm of insects or a school of fish. If one of the particle discovers a good path to food the rest of the swarm will be able to follow instantly even if they are far away in the swarm. Swarm behavior is modeled by particles in multidimensional space that have two characteristics: a position and a velocity. These particles wander around the hyperspace and remember the best position that they have discovered. They communicate good positions to each other and adjust their own position and velocity based on these good positions.
