Abstract: A well-designed best solution selection scheme is usually beneficial to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of evolutionary algorithms. Optimal trajectory searching, a new best solution selection mechanism in the search behaviour of the traditional differential evolution (DE), is presented and analysed. Then an improved algorithm based on traditional DE and optimal trajectory searching mechanism is presented for enhancing the performance of DE. Performance compared with other four DE variants indicates that our algorithm outperforms them in terms of convergence speed and solution accuracy.

Keywords: optimal trajectory searching; differential evolution; search behaviour.
