This paper presents adaptive guided differential evolution algorithm (AGDE) for solving global numerical optimization problems over continuous space. In order to utilize the information of good and bad vectors in the DE population, the proposed algorithm introduces a new mutation rule. It uses two random chosen vectors of the top and the bottom 100p% individuals in the current population of size NP while the third vector is selected randomly from the middle [NP-2(100p %)] individuals. This new mutation scheme helps maintain effectively the balance between the global exploration and local exploitation abilities for searching process of the DE. Besides, a novel and effective adaptation scheme is used to update the values of the crossover rate to appropriate values without either extra parameters or prior knowledge of the characteristics of the optimization problem. In order to verify and analyze the performance of AGDE, Numerical experiments on a set of 28 test problems from the CEC2013 benchmark for 10, 30, and 50 dimensions, including a comparison with classical DE schemes and some recent evolutionary algorithms are executed. Experimental results indicate that in terms of robustness, stability and quality of the solution obtained, AGDE is significantly better than, or at least comparable to state-of-the-art approaches.

The gaining sharing knowledge based optimization algorithm (GSK) is recently developed metaheuristic algorithm, which is based on how humans acquire and share knowledge during their life-time. This paper investigates a modified version of the GSK algorithm to find the best feature subsets. Firstly, it represents a binary variant of GSK algorithm by employing a probability estimation operator (Bi-GSK) on the two main pillars of GSK algorithm. And then, the chaotic maps are used to enhance the performance of the proposed algorithm. Ten different types of chaotic maps are considered to adapt the parameters of the GSK algorithm that make a proper balance between exploration and exploitation and save the algorithm from premature convergence. To check the performance of proposed approaches of GSK algorithm, twenty-one benchmark datasets are taken from the UCI repository for feature selection. The performance is measured by calculating different type of measures, and several metaheuristic algorithms are adopted to compare the obtained results. The results indicate that Chebyshev chaotic map shows the best result among all chaotic maps which improve the performance accuracy and convergence rate of the original algorithm. Moreover, it outperforms the other metaheuristic algorithms in terms of efficiency, fitness value and the minimum number of selected features.

This paper presents Differential Evolution algorithm for solving high-dimensional optimization problems over continuous space. The proposed algorithm, namely, ANDE, introduces a new triangular mutation rule based on the convex combination vector of the triplet defined by the three randomly chosen vectors and the difference vectors between the best, better, and the worst individuals among the three randomly selected vectors. The mutation rule is combined with the basic mutation strategy DE/rand/1/bin, where the new triangular mutation rule is applied with the probability of 2/3 since it has both exploration ability and exploitation tendency. Furthermore, we propose a novel self-adaptive scheme for gradual change of the values of the crossover rate that can excellently benefit from the past experience of the individuals in the search space during evolution process which in turn can considerably balance the common trade-off between the population diversity and convergence speed. The proposed algorithm has been evaluated on the 20 standard high-dimensional benchmark numerical optimization problems for the IEEE CEC-2010 Special Session and Competition on Large Scale Global Optimization. The comparison results between ANDE and its versions and the other seven state-of-the-art evolutionary algorithms that were all tested on this test suite indicate that the proposed algorithm and its two versions are highly competitive algorithms for solving large scale global optimization problems.

Mohamed, A. W., An efficient modified differential evolution algorithm for solving constrained non-linear integer and mixed-integer global optimization problems, , vol. 8, issue 3, pp. 989 - 1007, 2017. AbstractWebsite

In this paper, an efficient modified Differential Evolution algorithm, named EMDE, is proposed for solving constrained non-linear integer and mixed-integer global optimization problems. In the proposed algorithm, new triangular mutation rule based on the convex combination vector of the triplet defined by the three randomly chosen vectors and the difference vectors between the best,better and the worst individuals among the three randomly selected vectors is introduced. The proposed novel approach to mutation operator is shown to enhance the global and local search capabilities and to increase the convergence speed of the new algorithm compared with basic DE. EMDE uses Deb’s constraint handling technique based on feasibility and the sum of constraints violations without any additional parameters. In order to evaluate and analyze the performance of EMDE, Numerical experiments on a set of 18 test problems with different features, including a comparison with basic DE and four state-of-the-art evolutionary algorithms are executed. Experimental results indicate that in terms of robustness, stability and efficiency, EMDE is significantly better than other five algorithms in solving these test problems. Furthermore, EMDE exhibits good performance in solving two high-dimensional problems, and it finds better solutions than the known ones. Hence, EMDE is superior to the compared algorithms.

Wu, W., H. Ouyang, A. W. Mohamed, C. Zhang, and S. Li, Enhanced harmony search algorithm with circular region perturbation for global optimization problems, , vol. 50, issue 3, pp. 951 - 975, 2020. AbstractWebsite

To improve the searching effectiveness of the harmony search (HS) algorithm, an enhanced harmony search algorithm with circular region perturbation (EHS_CRP) is proposed in this paper. In the EHS_CRP algorithm, a global and local dimension selection strategy is designed to accelerate the search speed of the algorithm. A selection learning operator based on the global and local mean level is proposed to improve the balance between exploration and exploitation. Circular region perturbation is employed to avoid the algorithm stagnation and get a better exploration region. To assess performance, the proposed algorithm is compared with 10 state-of-the-art swarm intelligent approaches in a large set of global optimization problems. The simulation results confirm that EHS_CRP has a significant advantage in terms of accuracy, convergence speed, stability and robustness. Moreover, EHS_CRP performs better than other tested methods in engineering design optimization problems. Thus, the EHS_CRP algorithm is a viable and reliable alternative for some difficult and multidimensional real-world problems.

Song, Y., D. Wu, A. W. Mohamed, X. Zhou, B. Zhang, and W. Deng, "Enhanced Success History Adaptive DE for Parameter Optimization of Photovoltaic Models", Complexity, vol. 2021: Hindawi, pp. 6660115, 2021. AbstractWebsite

In the past few decades, a lot of optimization methods have been applied in estimating the parameter of photovoltaic (PV) models and obtained better results, but these methods still have some deficiencies, such as higher time complexity and poor stability. To tackle these problems, an enhanced success history adaptive DE with greedy mutation strategy (EBLSHADE) is employed to optimize parameters of PV models to propose a parameter optimization method in this paper. In the EBLSHADE, the linear population size reduction strategy is used to gradually reduce population to improve the search capabilities and balance the exploitation and exploration capabilities. The less and more greedy mutation strategy is used to enhance the exploitation capability and the exploration capability. Finally, a parameter optimization method based on EBLSHADE is proposed to optimize parameters of PV models. The different PV models are selected to prove the effectiveness of the proposed method. Comparison results demonstrate that the EBLSHADE is an effective and efficient method and the parameter optimization method is beneficial to design, control, and optimize the PV systems.

Abstract

Adaptive guided differential evolution algorithm (AGDE) is a DE algorithm that utilizes the information of good and bad vectors in the population, it introduced a novel mutation rule in order to balance effectively the exploration and exploitation tradeoffs. It divided the population into three clusters (best, better and worst) with sizes 100p%, NP-2 * 100p% and 100p% respectively. Where p is the proportion of the partition with respect to the total number of individuals in the population (NP). AGDE selects three random individuals, one of each partition to implement the mutation process. Besides, a novel adaptation scheme was proposed in order to update the value of crossover rate without previous knowledge about the characteristics of the problems. This paper introduces enhanced AGDE (EAGDE) with non-linear population size reduction, which gradually decreases the population size according to a non-linear function. Moreover, a newly developed rule developed to determine the initial population size, that is related to the dimensionality of the problems.

This paper proposes a novel nature-inspired algorithm called Gaining Sharing Knowledge based Algorithm (GSK) for solving optimization problems over continuous space. The GSK algorithm mimics the process of gaining and sharing knowledge during the human life span. It is based on two vital stages, junior gaining and sharing phase and senior gaining and sharing phase. The present work mathematically models these two phases to achieve the process of optimization. In order to verify and analyze the performance of GSK, numerical experiments on a set of 30 test problems from the CEC2017 benchmark for 10, 30, 50 and 100 dimensions. Besides, the GSK algorithm has been applied to solve the set of real world optimization problems proposed for the IEEE-CEC2011 evolutionary algorithm competition. A comparison with 10 state-of-the-art and recent metaheuristic algorithms are executed. Experimental results indicate that in terms of robustness, convergence and quality of the solution obtained, GSK is significantly better than, or at least comparable to state-of-the-art approaches with outstanding performance in solving optimization problems especially with high dimensions.

During the last decade, large-scale global optimization has been one of the active research fields. Optimization algorithms are affected by the curse of dimensionality associated with this kind of complex problems. To solve this problem, a new memetic framework for solving large-scale global optimization problems is proposed in this paper. In the proposed framework, success history-based differential evolution with linear population size reduction and semi-parameter adaptation (LSHADE-SPA) is used for global exploration, while a modified version of multiple trajectory search is used for local exploitation. The framework introduced in this paper is further enhanced by the concept of divide and conquer, where the dimensions are randomly divided into groups, and each group is solved separately. The proposed framework is evaluated using IEEE CEC2010 and the IEEE CEC2013 benchmarks designed for large-scale global optimization. The comparison results between our framework and other state-of-the-art algorithms indicate that our proposed framework is competitive in solving large-scale global optimization problems.

The optimum delivery of safeguarding substances is a major part of supply chain management and a crucial issue in the mitigation against the outbreak of pandemics. A problem arises for a decision maker who wants to optimally choose a subset of candidate consumers to maximize the distributed quantities of the needed safeguarding substances within a specific time period. A nonlinear binary mathematical programming model for the problem is formulated. The decision variables are binary ones that represent whether to choose a specific consumer, and design constraints are formulated to keep track of the chosen route. To better illustrate the problem, objective, and problem constraints, a real application case study is presented. The case study involves the optimum delivery of safeguarding substances to several hospitals in the Al-Gharbia Governorate in Egypt. The hospitals are selected to represent the consumers of safeguarding substances, as they are the first crucial frontline for mitigation against a pandemic outbreak. A distribution truck is used to distribute the substances from the main store to the hospitals in specified required quantities during a given working shift. The objective function is formulated in order to maximize the total amount of delivered quantities during the specified time period. The case study is solved using a novel Discrete Binary Gaining Sharing Knowledge-based Optimization algorithm (DBGSK), which involves two main stages: discrete binary junior and senior gaining and sharing stages. DBGSK has the ability of finding the solutions of the introduced problem, and the obtained results demonstrate robustness and convergence toward the optimal solutions.
