Abstract: Many hard optimization problems have been efficiently solved by two notable swarm intelligence algorithms, artificial bee colony (ABC) and firefly algorithm (FA). In this paper, a collaborative hybrid algorithm based on firefly and multi-strategy artificial bee colony, abbreviated as FA-MABC, is proposed for solving single-objective optimization problems. In the proposed algorithm, FA investigates the search space globally to locate favorable regions of convergence. A novel multi-strategy ABC is employed to perform local search. The proposed algorithm incorporates a diversity measure to help in the switch criteria. The FA-MABC is tested on 40 benchmark functions with diverse complexities. Comparative results with the basic FA, ABC and other recent state-of-the-art metaheuristic algorithms demonstrate the competitive performance of the FA-MABC.
