Analysis of Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm

Qinghai Bai


Particle swarm optimization is a heuristic global optimization method and also an optimization algorithm, which is based on swarm intelligence. It comes from the research on the bird and fish flock movement behavior. The algorithm is widely used and rapidly developed for its easy implementation and few particles required to be tuned. The main idea of the principle of PSO is presented; the advantages and the shortcomings are summarized. At last this paper presents some kinds of improved versions of PSO and research situation, and the future research issues are also given.
