File Information

Implements various optimization methods which do not use the gradient of the problem being optimized, including Particle Swarm Optimization, Differential Evolution, and others. The implementation is simple and easy to understand.
Also included are parallel versions of PSO and DE, as well as behavioural parameters tuned for various optimization scenarios.

Manual is available at

This is the Matlab version of the SwarmOps library which is also available for C#, C and Java at

sir, i am working on a 'Design of a Low Pass FIR filter using Genetic Algorithm & Different optimization technique viz. Particle swarm optimization, Ant colony(ABC) & cuckoo search algorithm" but i don't get any help for PSO & ant colony please sir , anyone give the the PSO .m file or ABC .m file plz help....
