Index Terms: shuffled frog leaping algorithm, evolutionary algorithms, nonlinear large scale problems



Abstract: In order to handle large scale problems, this study has used shuffled frog leaping algorithm. This algorithm is an optimization method based on natural memetics that uses a new two-phase modification to it to have a better search in the problem space. The suggested algorithm is evaluated by comparing to some well known algorithms using several benchmark optimization problems. The simulation results have clearly shown the superiority of this algorithm over other well-known methods in the area.
