Special Issue on: "Theoretical Analysis and Benchmarking of Nature-Inspired Algorithms"
Int. J. Bio-Inspired Computation (IJBIC, now SCI-index)

Prof. Xin-She Yang, Middlesex University, UK

Despite the huge success and popularity of nature-inspired algorithms in practice in recent years, the mathematical and statistical analysis of these algorithms is still lacking. In fact, apart from limited results on a few limited cases, convergence and stability of most algorithms still remain challenging, open problems.

Furthermore, existing benchmarking and comparison studies of these algorithms are fragmental and without a good framework, which necessitates a systematic approach to benchmarking.

This special issue therefore strives to stimulate more research on the theoretical aspects of nature-inspired algorithms and their benchmarking.
