Abstract

This article presents an investigation on two real-value methods such as Free Search (FS) and Particle Swarm Optimisation (PSO) applied to global optimisation numerical tests. The objective is to identify how to facilitate assessment of heuristic, evolutionary, adaptive and other optimisation and search algorithms. Particular aim is to assess: (1) probability for success of given method; (2) abilities of given method for entire search space coverage; (3) dependence on initialisation; (4) abilities of given method to escape from trapping in local sub-optima; (5) abilities of explored methods to resolve multidimensional (one hundred dimensions) global optimisation tasks; (6) performance on two and hundred dimensional tasks; (7) minimal number of objective function calculation for resolving hundred dimensional tasks with acceptable level of precision. Achieved experimental results are presented and analysed. Discussion on FS and PSO essential characteristics concludes the article.
