benchmarks, differential evolution, crossover rate, evolutionary algorithm global optimization, population size, scale factor.



this paper proposes an alternative differential evolution algorithm for solving unconstrained optimization problems. The performance of the given algorithm is measured by the result of 15 benchmarking problems the obtained results are competent in both accuracy and CPU time. The results obtained using the proposed algorithm are more accurate and use less number of function’s evaluations compared with several algorithms.
