Abstract: In this paper, we present a hybrid optimisation algorithm with artificial bee colony (ABC) and particle swarm optimisation (PSO). Due to the fast convergent speed, PSO is the main methodology of this hybrid algorithm, as well as ABC is used to optimise the parameters. To investigate the performance, it is applied to solve travelling salesman problem. Simulation results show it is effective.

Keywords: artificial bee colony; ABC algorithm; particle swarm optimisation; PSO; travelling salesman problem; TSP; hybrid optimisation; simulation.
