Particle swarm optimisation : classical and quantum optimisation

Even supposing the particle swarm optimisation (PSO) set of rules calls for fairly few parameters and is computationally basic and straightforward to enforce, it isn't a globally convergent set of rules. In Particle Swarm Optimisation: Classical and Quantum views, the authors introduce their notion of quantum-behaved debris encouraged via quantum mechanics, which results in the quantum-behaved particle swarm optimisation (QPSO) set of rules.
