File Information

Firefly algorithm for nonlinear constrained optimization.

For simple demo in 2D, please use firefly_simple.m

For unconstrained functions in higher dimenisions, please use fa_ndim.m

For nonlinear constrained optimization,
please use fa_mincon.m

MATLAB release MATLAB 7 (R14)

I need the firefly algorithm demo in order to use at the fusion level. I already tested with cuckoo search algorithm.

Please I wonder if it is possible to use Firefly Algorithm for features selection,where I have one dimensional array of features like Contrast,Correlation,Homogeneity,Cluster prominence,Energy,and...etc,and I want to use Firefly Algorithm to choose the best features of them,please could you guide me to do this job?thanks in advance.

I used firefly algorithm to solve a multimodal design problem
with 149 design variables, it works very efficiently.

Does this algorithm solve multi-objective problems with non-linear constrains?

Haven't look in detail. The first impression is great.

It is nice that the algorithm is implemented by the author.

Great Job!
