4 4 Abstract Nature-inspired algorithms are among the most powerful algorithms for optimization We will try to provide a detailed description of a new Firefly Algorithm (FA) for multimodal optimization applications We will compare the proposed firefly algorithm with other metaheuristic algorithms such as particle swarm optimization Finally we will discuss its applications and implications for further research Isfahan University of Technology. Fall 2010

5 5 Introduction PSO –Particle swarm optimization (PSO) was developed by Kennedy and Eberhart in 1995 –based on the swarm behavior such as fish and bird schooling in nature, the so-called swarm intelligence –Though particle swarm optimization has many similarities with genetic algorithms, but it is much simpler because it does not use mutation/crossover operators –Instead, it uses the real-number randomness and the global communication among the swarming particles. In this sense, it is also easier to implement as it uses mainly real numbers FA –particle swarm optimization is just a special class of the firefly algorithms Isfahan University of Technology. Fall 2010

6 6 Particle Swarm Optimization(PSO) The PSO algorithm searches the space of the objective functions by adjusting the trajectories of individual agents, called particles, as the piecewise paths formed by positional vectors in a quasi-stochastic manner The particle movement has two major components –stochastic component –deterministic component Isfahan University of Technology.

9 9 Behavior of Fireflies The flashing light of fireflies is an amazing sight in the summer sky in the tropical and temperate regions There are about two thousand firefly species, and most fireflies produce short and rhythmic flashes The pattern of flashes is often unique for a particular species Isfahan University of Technology. Fall 2010

10 10 Behavior of Fireflies Two fundamental functions of such flashes are – to attract mating partners (communication) – to attract potential prey Females respond to a male’s unique pattern of flashing in the same species We know that the light intensity at a particular distance ‘r’ from the light source obeys the inverse square law The air absorbs light which becomes weaker and weaker as the distance increases The flashing light can be formulated in such a way that it is associated with the objective function Isfahan University of Technology. Fall 2010

11 11 Firefly Algorithm For simplicity in describing our new FA we now use the following three idealized rules: –all fireflies are unisex so that one firefly will be attracted to other fireflies regardless of their sex –Attractiveness is proportional to their brightness, thus for any two flashing fireflies, the less brighter one will move towards the brighter one. If there is no brighter one than a particular firefly, it will move randomly –The brightness of a firefly is affected or determined by the landscape of the objective function. For a maximization problem, the brightness can simply be proportional to the value of the objective function Isfahan University of Technology. Fall 2010

21 21 Conclusions we have formulated a new firefly algorithm and analyzed its similarities and differences with particle swarm optimization We then implemented and compared these algorithms Our simulation results for finding the global optima of various test functions suggest that particle swarm often outperforms traditional algorithms such as genetic algorithms, while the new firefly algorithm is superior to both PSO and GA in terms of both efficiency and success rate Isfahan University of Technology.
