Seeker optimisation (human group optimisation) algorithm with chaos
Seeker optimisation algorithm (SOA), also referred to as human group metaheuristic optimisation algorithms form a very hot area of research, is an emerging population-based and gradient-free optimisation tool. It is inspired by searching behaviour of human beings in finding an optimal solution. The principal shortcoming of SOA is that it is easily trapped in local optima and consequently fails to achieve near-global solutions in complex optimisation problems. In an attempt to relieve this problem, in this article, chaos-based strategies are embedded into SOA. Five various chaotic-based SOA strategies with four different chaotic map functions are examined and the best strategy is chosen as the suitable chaotic scheme for SOA. The results of applying the proposed chaotic SOA to miscellaneous benchmark functions confirm that it provides accurate solutions. It surpasses basic SOA, genetic algorithm, gravitational search algorithm variant, cuckoo search optimisation algorithm, firefly swarm optimisation and harmony search the proposed chaos-based SOA is expected successfully solve complex engineering optimisation problems.
