Many heuristic search techniques have concurrent processes of exploration and exploitation. In particle swarm optimization, an improved 'pbest' position can represent a new more promising region of the search space (exploration) or a better solution within the current region (exploitation). The latter can interfere with the former since the identification of a new more promising region depends on finding a (random) solution in that region which is better than the current 'pbest'. Ideally, every...[Show more]
