Chaotic Dynamic Weight Particle Swarm Optimization for Numerical Function Optimization
Ke Chen, Fengyu Zhou*, Aling Liu
Abstract:Particle swarm optimization(PSO), which isinspired by social behaviors of individuals in bird swarms, is a nature-inspired and global optimization algorithm. The PSO method is easy toimplement and has shown good performance for many real-world optimization tasks. However, PSO has problems with premature convergence and easy trapping into local optimum solutions. In order to overcome these deficiencies, a chaotic dynamic weight particle swarm optimization (CDW-PSO) is proposed. In the CDW-PSO algorithm, a chaotic map and dynamic weight are introduced to modifythe search process. The dynamic weight is defined as a function of the fitness.The search accuracy and performance of the CDW-PSO algorithm are verified onseventeen well-known classical benchmark functions. The experimental resultsshow that, for almost all functions, the CDW-PSO technique has superiorperformance compared with other nature-inspired optimizations and well-knownPSO variants. Namely, the proposed algorithm of CDW-PSO has better searchperformance.

Ø The particle swarm optimization (PSO) is easily trapped into local optimum solution and premature convergence。 In order toimprove the aforementioned problems, a chaotic dynamic weight particle swarm optimization called CDW-PSO is proposed。
Ø The CDW-PSO algorithm was used to optimization of seventeen well-known classical benchmark functions. Experimental results show that combined with chaotic map and dynamic weight of CDW-PSO method is effective than original PSO.
Ø In order to better show search performanceof CDW-PSO algorithm, similar intelligence methods and PSO variants are adopted to compare with CDW-PSO algorithm. The results indicate that the CDW-PSO algorithm outperforms similar intelligence methods and other PSO variants for most of the classical benchmark functions.
