A Composite Framework of Cuckoo Search and PSO Algorithm


Article Preview

A novel composite framework of Cuckoo Search (CS) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) algorithm called CS-PSO is proposed in this paper. In CS-PSO, initialization is substituted by chaotic system, and then Cuckoo shares optimums in the global best solutions pool with particles in PSO to improve parallel cooperation and social interaction. Furthermore, Cloud Model, famous for its outstanding characteristics of the process of transforming qualitative concepts to a set of quantitative numerical values, is adopted to exploit the surrounding of the local solutions obtained from the global best solution pool. Benchmark test results show that, CS-PSO can converge to the global optimum solution rapidly and accurately, compared with other algorithms, especially in high dimensional problems.
