Editorial: New Trends on Swarm Intelligent Systems
Zhihua Cui and Sanyou Zeng
Swarm intelligence is an innovative distribute computational way to solving hard problems. This discipline is inspired from the biological examples by swarming, flocking and herding phenomenon in vertebrates. In general, multi-agent systems that use some swarm intelligence are said to be swarm intelligent systems. They are mostly used as search engines and optimization tools. The goal of this special issue has been to offer a wide spectrum of sample works throughout the world about innovative methodologies of swarm intelligence. The issue should be useful both for beginners and experienced researchers in the field of computational intelligence.
Keywords: Swarm intelligence, particle swarm optimization, group search optimizer, central force optimization.
