# Particle Swarm Optimization algorithms (for continuous and/or discrete independent variables), with inertia weight or constriction coefficient and velocity clamping, and with a modification that constricts the continuous independent variables to a mesh to reduce computation time.
# A hybrid global optimization algorithm that uses Particle Swarm Optimization for the global optimization, and Hooke-Jeeves for the local optimization.

Generates a semi-random 3-D landscape. A randomly generated particle
swarm of 12 particles attempts to find the "global maximum" on the
landscape. Runs under Java 1.1.

encode/decode mode and real-value based mode, six crossover types
and seven selection types 2. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO): six
schemes (2 standard and 4 new) 3. Differential Evolution (DE): ten
schemes (5 new) 4. Maximum Inherit Optimization (MIO): four schemes
|Standard PSO 2006||Quite often some authors say they compare their PSO versions to
the "standard one" ... which is never the same! So the idea is to
define a real standard at least for one year, validated by some
researchers of the field, in particular James Kennedy and Maurice Clerc.

|Standard PSO 2007 (SPSO-07)||Quite often, researchers claim to compare their version of PSO with the "standard one", but the"standard one" itself seems to vary! Thus, it is important to define a real standard that would stay unchanged for at least one year. More functions have been added in 2009-2010. Written in C. There is also a R version, slightly different, but with more options, by Claus Bendtsen, here.||2010-09|

||By Mauricio Zambrano-Bigiarini and Rodrigo Rojas. A newly developed package for the calibration/optimisation of environmental and other real-world models that need to be executed from the system console. hydroPSO is model-independent, allowing the user to easily interface any computer simulation model with the optimisation engine, through the model's own input and output files. It implements a state-of-the-art PSO algorithm (SPSO-2011 and SPSO-2007 capable), with several fine-tuning options (topologies, boundary conditions, initialisations, etc) and PSO variants available to customise the optimisation engine to different applications. User-friendly plotting functions facilitate the interpretation and assessment of the optimisation results. hydroPSO is parallel-capable, to alleviate the computational burden of complex models with "long" execution time.||2012-12-21

Rubio. Our aim is to provide a library of generic Haskell versions
of the most common bioinspired metaheuristics, as well as a library
containing the corresponding Eden (a parallel version of Haskell)
skeletons for each metaheuristic. By doing so, we will simplify the
task of using these metaheuristics in functional settings, and we
will also simplify the task of improving their performance by means
of parallelizing them. Moreover, as several metaheuristics will be
provided in the same environment, the programmer will be able to
check more easily what metaheuristics fits better for each concrete
