Particle Swarm Optimization in MATLAB

Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is an intelligent optimization algorithm based on the Swarm Intelligence. It is based on a simple mathematical model, developed by Kennedy and Eberhart in 1995, to describe the social behavior of birds and fish. The model relies mostly on the basic principles of self-organization which is used to describe the dynamics of complex systems. Swarm intelligence ...

Binary and Real-Coded Genetic Algorithms in MATLAB

Genetic Algorithms (GAs) are most famous Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) which are inspired from natural evolution and selection. Their main application is in the field of optimization. Hence they are applicable to any kind of problem, which can be converted or stated as an optimization task. To read more about Genetic Algorithms, you can see the related article in Wikipedia (here). ...
