This is a demo for the metaheuristic algorithm, Novel Bat Algorithm (NBA). Different from the basic Bat Algorithm (BA), the different individuals in NBA have different search strategies, and a self-adaptive local search strategy is also embedded into NBA. In this sense, NBA is a multi-swarm and self-adaptive algorithm. Simulations and comparisons show NBA’s superiority over many metaheuristic algorithms.
