Sunflower optimization algorithm (SFO): population-based nature inspired algorithm mimicking the sunflowers movement towards the sun

1. Introduction The SFO is a new meta-heuristic algorithm which is stimulated by the moving of sunflowers towards the sunlight by considering the pollination between adjacent sunflowers. Also, the SFO is stimulated by the inverse square law radiation and it is a technique is a population-based iterative heuristic global [1] optimization algorithm for multi-modal problems. […]

Pigeon Inspired Optimization (PIO) Algorithm: A Novel method motivated from the behavior of Pigeons for Optimal Solution

1. Introduction     Pigeon-inspired Optimization (PIO) algorithm is a novel swarm intelligence optimization algorithm, which was firstly invented by Duan in 2014. Population-based swarm intelligence algorithms have been widely accepted and successfully applied to solve many optimization problems. All the bio-inspired optimization algorithms are trying to simulate the natural ecosystem mechanisms, which have greatly improved […]
