Differential Search Algorithm (DSA) for Numerical Optimization Problems
Differential Search Algorithm (DSA) is a new and effective evolutionary algorithm for solving real-valued numerical optimization problems. DSA was inspired by migration of superorganisms utilizing the concept of brownian like motion. In , the problem solving success of DSA was compared to the successes of ABC, JDE, JADE, SADE, EPSDE, GSA, PSO2011 and CMA-ES algorithms for solution of numerical optimization problems.
