Abstract: In this study, we extend cuckoo search algorithm that incorporates one-position inheritance mechanism, called OPICS. After searching for new solutions in Lévy flights random walk, OPICS employs one-position inheritance mechanism to ensure that these new solutions learn one-dimensional information from the random solution. Learning extra information can help these new solutions escaping from a local optimum. Moreover, the one-position inheritance mechanism helps the best solution participate in searching for a new solution. Extensive experiments, which are carried on 28 benchmark functions with different properties, demonstrate the improvement in effectiveness and efficiency of OPICS.
Keywords: cuckoo search algorithm; one-position inheritance; one dimension learning; nature-inspired algorithms; function optimisation; random walk.
