Whale Optimization Algorithm Guided by Complex Networks

Joshua Triana, Carlos Delgado, Karen L. Martínez-Mendoza


The Whale Optimization Algorithm is a brand new bio inspired optimization algorithm. In this work, we propose an alternative using an underlying small-world complex network to guide the whales in the matching selection with other whales in the updating process to find the best possible solution in each iteration instead of a random selection. We perform a comparison between the original Whale Optimization Algorithm with the proposed model in some optimization functions tested. The obtained results are auspicious in terms of fitness convergence. Optimization algorithm guiding small-world complex networks show favorable results, as suggested by previous research.

We have provided the online access of all issues and papers to the indexing agencies (as given on journal web site). It’s depend on indexing agencies when, how and what manner they can index or not. Hence, we like to inform that on the basis of earlier indexing, we can’t predict the today or future indexing policy of third party (i.e. indexing agencies) as they have right to discontinue any journal at any time without prior information to the journal. So, please neither sends any question nor expects any answer from us on the behalf of third party i.e. indexing agencies.Hence, we will not issue any certificate or letter for indexing issue. Our role is just to provide the online access to them. So we do properly this and one can visit indexing agencies website to get the authentic information. Also: DOI is paid service which provided by a third party. We never mentioned that we go for this for our any journal. However, journal have no objection if author go directly for this paid DOI service.
