Chapter Chapter 4 in Applying Particle Swarm Optimization, 2021, pp 49-72 from Springer

Abstract: Abstract The research and development of metaheuristic methods are critical issues in computer science. In the past decade, metaheuristic algorithms have been used in many engineering applications such as optimization of engineering problems, telecommunications, information security, and image processing. Many metaheuristic algorithms such as particle swarm optimization (PSO), ant colony optimization (ACO), and genetic algorithm (GA) are recently becoming very popular. There are many studies conducted in the literature on the comparison of PSO with other metaheuristic algorithms. In this chapter, various studies carried out between the years of 2010 and 2020 about the comparison of PSO with the other metaheuristic algorithms will be examined. The metaheuristic algorithms to be considered are simulated annealing (SA), genetic algorithm (GA), differential evolution (DE), ant colony optimization (ACO), artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm, particle swarm optimization (PSO), tabu search (TS), harmony search (HS), firefly algorithm (FF), cuckoo search (CS), bat-inspired algorithm (BA), water wave optimization (WWO), clonal selection algorithm (CLONALG), chemical reaction optimization (CRO), sine cosine algorithm (SCA), glowworm swarm optimization (GSO), and grey wolf optimizer (GWO). This study aims to evaluate and analyze the covered papers according to several criteria such as (a) rates of studies according to publishing years, (b) the metaheuristic algorithms that are compared to PSO, (c) performance evaluation of compared algorithms, (d) the metaheuristic algorithms with their inspirational approaches and their initial proposed studies and years, (e) the field of subjects where the algorithms are applied in the reviewed studies, and (f) used databases in the examined studies. This study is a comprehensive literature review of the comparison of PSO with the most popular metaheuristic algorithms. The intention of this review is to be useful for researchers who want to conduct a survey on this area of the subject as this chapter will cover the essential and helpful analysis of the related research.
