Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO)
Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is a swarm intelligence (SI) technique developed by Kennedy and Eberhart in 1995. The underlying motivation for the development of PSO algorithm was social behavior of animals such as bird flocking, fish schooling, and swarm theory. The fundament to the development of PSO is a hypothesis that social sharing of information among conspeciates offers an evolutionary advantage. One of reasons that PSO is attractive is that there are very few parameters to be adjusted.
PSO has been implemented into the Multiagent Optimization System (MAOS).
