Differential evolution (DE) has gained a lot of attention from the global optimization research community. It has proved to be a very robust algorithm for solving non-differentiable and non-convex global optimization problems. In this paper, we propose some modifications to the original algorithm. Specifically, we use the attraction-repulsion concept of electromagnetism-like (EM) algorithm to boost the mutation operation of the original differential evolution. We carried out a numerical study using a set of 50 test problems, many of which are inspired by practical applications. Results presented show the potential of this new approach.
