Fractional Order Darwinian Particle Swarm Optimization: Applications and Evaluation of an Evolutionary Algorithm

This publication examines the bottom-up applicability of swarm intelligence to fixing a number of difficulties, similar to curve becoming, snapshot segmentation, and swarm robotics. It compares the functions of a few of the better-known bio-inspired optimization methods, particularly Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Darwinian Particle Swarm Optimization (DPSO) and the lately proposed Fractional Order Darwinian Particle Swarm Optimization (FODPSO), and comprehensively discusses their merits and downsides.

These growth rates are expressed as an average across all sectors of the economy and include agricultural, industrial and service sectors. 21% per annum recorded for the USA and similar to those of France and Germany but below that for Japan. 7 Growth in output per hour worked, 1979–99. 28 *West Germany.

On the other hand, the UK’s labour productivity performance deteriorated in the 1990s, being somewhat better than that for France but worse than those for Germany and Japan.

For example, the levels of skill and security of employment vary significantly between financial services and retailing. The wage differentials will be needed to compensate for these skill differences, and centralized union bargaining designed to narrow wage differentials will clearly be perceived by employers as having adverse effects on the growth of service sector productivity. The roles of trade unions will clearly have to adapt, with the diversity of the service sector making the retention of union membership more difficult and weakening the traditional systems of wage bargaining.

The companies studied covered manufacturing, finance and communication sectors and were located in many countries including the US, France, Germany and the UK. The results showed that the US and German management were identified as having used their time the most productively (both achieving 61% use of productive time), followed by France (54%) with the UK the worst performer of the countries in the study (48%). In many of the countries, the reasons for such loss of productive time were arguably managerial in nature, such as ‘insufficient planning and control’ or ‘inadequate management insufficient supervision’.
