About HMS Algorithm

Metaheuristic algorithms have become one of challenging and controversial family of algorithms in the field of computational science and optimization. One of the new algorithms is Human Mental Search (HMS) Algorithm, initially developed and published in 2017 by Seyed Jalaleddin Mousavirad.

The HMS algorithm is inspired by exploration strategies of the bid space in online auctions. HMS algorithm has three leading operators: mental search, grouping, and moving. Mental search creates some new solutions around a solution based on Levy flight that leads to enhance diversification and intensification properties simultaneously. Another operator is grouping that solutions are grouped into some regions using a clustering algorithm, and finally, the moving operator which tries other solutions to get close to the promising region.

The source code of HMS algorithm will be realized publicly as soon as possible (after polishing ), but if you need the source code now, don’t hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to share the source code with you.

I will always be happy to collaborate with you if you have any new idea or proposal on the HMS algorithm and related topics. You can contact me and kindly let me know. Let’s enjoy finding the optimal solutions to your real-world problems.
