"Swarm intelligence search: topology and stability" by Slawomir J Nasuto, Mark Bishop, Kris De Meyer Submitted to Natural Computing, 2008
This paper explore the swarm intelligence stability based on stochastic diffusion search (SDS) which is capable to find rapid location of the optimal solution in the search space. Population based search mechanisms employed by Swarm Intelligence methods can suffer lack of convergence resulting in ill defined stopping criteria and loss of the best solution. Conversely, as a result of the positive feedback in its resource allocation mechanism, the solutions SDS discovers enjoy excellent stability. The standard SDS relies on the all-to-all connectivity of agents. We relax the assumption about such interaction patterns and investigate various connection topologies. We also characterize the stability problems in terms of their steady state probability distribution, because SDS behaves in the limit as an ensemble of identical ergodic Markov chains.
