International Journal of Bio-Inspired Computation (IJBIC), Vol. 5, No. 3, 2013

Abstract: Bat algorithm (BA) is a bio-inspired algorithm developed by Xin-She Yang in 2010 and BA has been found to be very efficient. As a result, the literature has expanded significantly in the last three years. This paper provides a timely review of the bat algorithm and its new variants. A wide range of diverse applications and case studies are also reviewed and summarised briefly here. In addition, we also discuss the essence of an algorithm and the links between algorithms and self-organisation. Further research topics are also discussed.
