Practical Genetic Algorithms in Python and MATLAB – Video Tutorial

Practical Genetic Algorithms in Python and MATLAB - Video Tutorial

Genetic Algorithms (GAs) are members of a general class of optimization algorithms, known as Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs), which simulate a fictional environment based on theory of evolution to deal with various types of mathematical problem, especially those related to optimization. Also Genetic Algorithms can be categorized as a subset of Metaheuristics, which are general-purpose tools and algorithms to solve optimization ...

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 ...

Invasive Weed Optimization (IWO) in MATLAB

Invasive Weed Optimization (IWO) is a nature-inspired metaheuristic, inspired by spreading strategy of weeds, and proposed by Alireza Mehrabian and Caro Lucas, in 2006. Based on the r/K Selection Theory, the artificial weeds (solutions) use the r-Selection strategy in the beginning of algorithms, and gradually they switch to K-Selection strategy, as algorithm continues to running. For more information on the ...
