Biogeography-Based Optimization

Description

Solves global optimization problems via Biogeography-Based Optimization method.

Usage

bbo(fn, lower, upper, DisplayFlag = TRUE, RandSeed, control = bbo.control(), ...)

Arguments

fn

the function to be optimized (minimized).

lower, upper

two vectors specifying scalar real lower and upper bounds on each parameter to be optimized, so that the i-th element of lower and upper applied to the i-th parameter. The implementation searches between lower and upper for the global optimum (minimum) of fn.

DisplayFlag

TRUE or FALSE, whether or not to display, default is TRUE

RandSeed

random number seed

control

a list of control parameters; see bbo.control.

...

further arguments to be passed to fn

Details

Given an objective function, this method performs biogeography-based optimization and returns the minimum cost for the given objective function.

Value

The output of the function bbo is a list containing the following elements:
prop, a list of control parameters for BBO for the current run:

minCost, a list containing the following elements:

bestHabitat a list containing the following elements:

Examples

	## --------------------
	## Rosenbrock function:
	## --------------------
	## It has a global minimum f(x) = 0 at (1,1).  
	## Kindly note that the first parameter passed to the 
	## objective function should be the vector of parameters
	## to be optimized.
	Rosenbrock <- function(x){
	  x1 <- x[1]
	  x2 <- x[2]
	  return(  100 * (x2 - x1 * x1)^2 + (1 - x1)^2 )
  	}

	bbo(Rosenbrock, -5, 5, control = 
		bbo.control(pMutate = 0.4, 
				numVar = 2, 
				popSize = 50, 
				KEEP = 5, 
				maxGen = 20))
