Abstract

Meta-heuristic optimization algorithms have become popular choice for solving complex and intricate problems which are otherwise difficult to solve by traditional methods. In the present study an attempt is made to review the one main algorithm is a well known meta-heuristic; Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). PSO, in its present form, has been in existence for roughly a decade, a relatively short time compared with some of the other natural computing paradigms such as artificial neural networks and evolutionary computation. However, in that short period, PSO has gained widespread appeal amongst researchers and has been shown to offer good performance in a variety of application domains, with potential for hybridization and specialization, and demonstration of some interesting emergent behavior. This study comprises a snapshot of particle swarm optimization from the authors' perspective, including variations in the algorithm, modifications and refinements introduced to prevent swarm stagnation and hybridization of PSO with other heuristic algorithms.
