Abstract

In this study, a new toolbox that can be used for the education of bio-inspired methods for optimization of mathematical functions is presented. The main idea of this work is to offer user-friendly software to students of bio-inspired optimization methods. The new toolbox can be used to optimize benchmark mathematical functions in evolutionary computation, and can also be used in the research of new bio-inspired optimization methods. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
