On the moments of the sampling distribution of particle swarm optimisers
A method is presented that allows one to exactly determine all the characteristics of a PSO’s sampling distribution and explain how it changes over time, in the presence stochas...

Exact analysis of the sampling distribution for the canonical particle swarm optimiser and its convergence during stagnation
Several theoretical analyses of the dynamics of particle swarms have been offered in the literature over the last decade. Virtually all rely on substantial simplifications, incl...

Theoretical derivation, analysis and empirical evaluation of a simpler Particle Swarm Optimiser
In this paper we derive a simpler form of Particle Swarm Optimiser (PSO) which still retains the key properties of the original model. We do so by progressively altering the origin...

Extending Particle Swarm Optimisation via Genetic Programming
Abstract. Particle Swarm Optimisers (PSOs) search using a set of interacting particles flying over the fitness landscape. These are typically controlled by forces that encourage ...

Optimising Cancer Chemotherapy Using Particle Swarm Optimisation and Genetic Algorithms
Cancer chemotherapy is a complex treatment mode that requires balancing the benefits of treating tumours using anti-cancer drugs with the adverse toxic side-effects caused by these...
