In this paper, a strategy-adaptation-based bacterial foraging optimization (SABFO) algorithm is proposed to
solve the optimization of complex problems. The proposed SABFO algorithm adopts the strategic approach into
chmotaxis step of traditional bacterial foraging optimization (BFO). The proposed method makes each bacterium
swim on different run-lengths, and increases bacterial diversity as well. Five optimization problems of nonlinear
benchmark functions are used to verify the performance of SABFO. Simulation results show that the SABFO obtains
better global optimal solutions than other methods.
