    Abstract: This paper proposes an improved firefly algorithm (IFA)based on local search method for solving globaloptimization problems. The main feature of the proposed algorithm is to improve the solutions quality generated from the fireflies by embedding the local search method. Moreover, the new solutions are generated based on the movement formula of the ... Show More
