Loop Bat Family Algorithm (Loop BFA) Application for Problem Solving in Numerical Optimization

Reporter: Pecić L.

In this paper, the standard Bat Algorithm (BA) is extended by introducing a bat family for the purpose of continuous repetition of the procedure for searching for an optimal solution. The standard BA is modified by including the loop search in the zone of solutions. For each bat, in each family, fine search according to the  Lévy-flight step is used for looking for an improved solution until the given constraints are satisfied. Such solutions are compared for each bat family and the best one is selected. In this paper, the Loop Bat Family Algorithm (Loop BFA) is tested on five standard benchmark functions known in the literature. The correctness and efficiency of the proposed algorithm are verified by good results in these examples.

Keywords: Bat Algorithm, Global optimization, Metaheuristic, Lévy-flight, Loop Bat Family Algorithm
