Differential Evolution (DE)
[Chinese version]

Differential Evolution (DE) is an optimizatin method developed by Price and Storn in 1995. DE is original proposed as an evolution strategy (ES). It may also be considered as an swarm intelligence (SI) based method.

DE has been implemented into the Multiagent Optimization System (MAOS).
