Thank you very much for this tutorial. Very helpful. In particular the way you tweak the ga to make behave like a swarm is nice. Question: is ga an implementation of the differential evolution of Storn and Price (1997)?

i´m doing research and writing my master thesis. the assessed problem is a mixed integer linear problem. i´d like to apply a PSO within the global optimization toolbox and ga algorithm.

however, the ga optimization ignores the SelectionFcn, which has been defined as the core of the PSO.
could anyone help with this problem, please?
thanks a lot in advance

i am doing my university project on manufacturing cell design using PSO tool. The problem is defined as a part/machine incidence matrix which maps part and machine, and the clustering should be formed block diagonally in order to make the cells. the objective is to minimize exceptional element count (EE). the PSO particle string should contain the cell nos. and index of the string are the machine nos.
Since i am new to this field, facing problem to implement the logic and code. Can anyone help in this regards. Matlab is the interface of the program. the problem is shown in a link
