PSO optimization of the 2D Rastrigin function.
by Yubo "Paul" Yang
Particle Swarm Optimization
Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is a nature inspired optimization algorithm. PSO mimics the behavior of a flock of birds looking for food source.
In this presentation, I present:
- Motivation for PSO.
- Show an example where the algorithm works well. (2D Rastrigin)
- Modification needed to apply it to the bin packing problem.
My pso example to minimize the 2D Rastrigin function notebook (html) and related python library.
