Chaos Game Optimization (CGO): Useful for the Application of Fractal Theory such as Classification and Identification

1. Introduction Game is a competitive activity involving skill, chance, or endurance on the part of two or more persons who play according to a set of rules, usually for their own amusement or for that of spectators Most of the design problems in the nature can be considered as optimization problems which request some […]

Decorderz #16 Theory & Applications of Genetic Algorithm: Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

Genetic Algorithm (GA) is developed in 1975 by Prof. John Holland was inspired by Darwin’s theory of evolution which states that the survival of an organism is affected by rule “the strongest species that survives”. Darwin also stated that the survival of an organism can be maintained through the process of reproduction, crossover and mutation. […]

Inspired by Plants Survival An New Optimization is presented: Fertile Field Algorithm for Continuous Nonlinear Optimization Problems

1. Introduction Nature, as a rich source of solutions, can be an inspirational guide to answer scientific expectations [1]. Seed dispersal mechanism as one of the most common reproduction [2] method among the plants is a unique technique with millions of years of evolutionary history [3]. Inspired by plants survival, a novel method of optimization […]

Rain optimization algorithm (ROA): Inspired by the Raindrop’s behaviour used for the Application of Forecasting Rainfall using Machine Learning Strategies

1. Introduction A new optimization algorithm called Rain optimization Algorithm (ROA) [1] is validated by applying on computationally expensive benchmark problems [2]. ROA mimics the natural behavior of raindrops trickling down a hill (high position) towards a valley (low position) [3]. 2. Inspiration of ROA The main inspiration of ROA is from raindrop behavior [4]. Raindrops naturally trickle down along […]

Sandpiper Optimization Algorithm (SOA): A New Approach to Solve Challenging Real- Life Problems

1. Introduction In different real-world problems there is a need to minimize production cost, risks, and maximize reliability etc [1]. Optimization is the process of determining the best value for a decision variable of a function so as to minimize or maximize an objective function [2]. The objective of the optimization process is to determine […]

Vapour – Liquid Equilibrium (VLE): An Algorithm Inspired by the Chemical Phenomenon for Solving a New Patient Bed Assignment Problem

1. Introduction In Chemistry, the vapor-liquid equilibrium process describes the distribution of chemical species combining two essential phases [1]: vapor phase and liquid phase. Using a binary system of compounds is possible to simulate a search process based on the equilibrium between both phases [2]. Understanding the distribution of chemical components in both the vapor and liquid phase, called vapor-liquid […]

Border Collie Optimization (BOC): Algorithm mimicking the Sheep Herding Styles of Border Collie Dogs used for Solving Real World Optimization Problem

1. Introduction The Border collie is often considered to be the brightest dog from other breeds that are considered to have higher cognitive skill levels [1]. It is known that dogs, like people, have different levels of intelligence [2]. Intelligence is determined by the ability of the dog to learn, which generally means the ability […]
