Foraging behavior of social creatures has always been a matter of study for the development of optimization algorithms. Spider Monkey Optimization (SMO) is a global optimization algorithm inspired by Fission-Fusion social (FFS) structure of spider monkeys during their foraging behavior. SMO exquisitely depicts two fundamental concepts of swarm intelligence: self-organization and division of labor. SMO has gained popularity in recent years as a swarm intelligence based algorithm and is being applied to many engineering optimization problems. This chapter presents the Spider Monkey Optimization algorithm in detail. A numerical example of SMO procedure has also been given for a better understanding of its working.
