GWO, Metaheuristic, Optimization



A grey wolf optimization algorithm is a newly developed metaheuristic algorithm. GWO has given a better solution to the optimization problem as compare to other swarm intelligence. It is a very simple and easy to implement this algorithm. It is considered as balanced in exploitation and exploration. GWO has a few parameters that why researches use this algorithm to solve the optimization problem. In this research a systematic literature study is carried out for studying about grey wolf optimization algorithm and its several models like hybrid, modified etc. Focus of this research is to deep investigate about Grey wolf optimization algorithm and find out issues in it.
