Abstract

Over the years, the area of Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) has drawn wide attention among researchers as the algorithm is able to enhance local searching ability and efficiency. Alternatively, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) has been used effectively in solving optimization problems. This paper compares the optimization results of the mathematical functions using AIS and PSO. The numerical results show that both PSO and AIS give comparable fitness solutions with the former performing about 56 percent faster than the latter. Conversely, for simpler mathematical functions, AIS performs marginally faster than PSO at about 14 percent while maintaining good accuracy of the objective value.
