The Blue Monkey: A New Nature Inspired Metaheuristic Optimization Algorithm

Maha Mahmood, Belal Al-Khateeb

Abstract


This paper introduces a study to Blue Monkey (BM) algorithm, which is a new metaheuristic algorithm optimization based on the performance of blue monkey swarms in nature. The BM algorithm identifies how many males in one group. Normally, outside the season of the breeding, the groups of blue monkeys have only one adult male like other forest guenons. In addition to related patas monkeys (Erythrocebus patas).
Forty-three of well-known test functions, which used in the area of optimization are used as benchmark to check BM algorithm, in addition, BM verified by a comparative performance check with Artificial-Bee-Colony (ABC), Gravitational Search Algorithm (GSA), Biogeography-Based Optimizer (BBO), and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). The obtained results demonstrated that BM algorithm is competitive compared with the selected metaheuristic algorithms; also, BM is able to converge towards the global optimal through optimization problems. Further, this algorithm is very efficient in field of dissolving real problems with restrictions and unidentified search space. It should be mentioned that the BM algorithm has some variables and it can obtain better results. in many test functions comparing with other algorithms.
