Abstract

This article proposes a new technique to solve optimization problems based on barnacles’ mating behavior namely Barnacles Mating Optimizer (BMO). Barnacles are micro-organisms existed since Jurassic times and they attach themselves to objects in the water and grow shell. They are also known as hermaphroditic micro-organisms and one of the special characters of barnacles is they have long penises which is the longest in animal kingdom relative to their body size. The Hardy-Weinberg principle is adopted in BMO to generate new off-springs and the mating process is performed randomly based on the length of the barnacle’s penis. The effectiveness of BMO is tested through a set of 23 benchmark functions in finding the optimal solutions. Some impactful and reliable results are presented compared with other techniques in this paper.
