## Artificial Bee Colony in MATLAB

Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) is a metaheuristic algorithm, inspired by foraging behavior of honey bee swarm, and proposed by Derviş Karaboğa, in 2005. It is a simple, yet powerful algorithm, and can be used to solve wide variety of practical and real-world optimization problems. For more information on the Artificial Bee Colony algorithm you can refer to the related article ...

## Bees Algorithm (BeA) in MATLAB

Bees Algorithm (BeA) is a metaheuristic optimization algorithm, inspired by food foraging behavior of honey bee colonies, and proposed by Pham et al., in 2005. In this algorithm, the mechanism of Waggle Dance is used to simulate the communication between bees. Better bees (solutions) have more opportunity to do waggle dance, and hence they are capable of attract more bees ...

## Firefly Algorithm (FA) in MATLAB

Firefly Algorithm (FA) is a metaheuristic algorithm for global optimization, which is inspired by flashing behavior of firefly insects. This algorithm is proposed by Xin-She Yang in 2008. Fireflies use the flashing behavior to attract other fireflies, usually for sending signals to opposite sex. However, in the mathematical model, used inside Firefly Algorithm, simply the fireflies are unisex, and any ...
