Abstract: Firefly algorithm (FA), as a relatively recent emerged swarm intelligence algorithm, is powerful and popular for the complex real parameter global optimisation. However, the premature convergence has greatly affected the performance of original FA. To overcome this problem, we proposed a Gaussian bare-bones FA, named GBFA, in which each firefly moves to a Gaussian bare-bones method generated learning object rather than its better neighbours. The experiments are conducted on a set of widely used benchmark functions. Experimental results and comparison with the state-of-the-art FA variants have proved that the proposed algorithm is promising.
