Abstract

An algorithm that is a combination of the particle swarm and differential evolution algorithms is introduced. The results of testing this on a graduated set of trial problems is given. It is shown that the combined algorithm out performs both of the component algorithms under most conditions, in both absolute and computational load weighted terms.
