"We present CFSO3, an optimization heuristic within the class of the swarm intelligence, based on a synergy among three different. features of the Continuous Flock-of-Starlings Optimization. One of the main novelties is that this optimizer is no more a classical. numerical algorithm since it now can be seen as a continuous dynamic system, which can be treated by using all the mathematical. instruments available for managing state equations. In addition, CFSO3 allows passing from stochastic approaches to supervised. deterministic ones since the randomupdating of parameters, a typical feature for numerical swam-based optimization algorithms, is. now fully substituted by a supervised strategy: in CFSO3 the tuning of parameters is a priori designed for obtaining both exploration. and exploitation. Indeed the exploration, that is, the escaping froma localminimum, as well as the convergence and the refinement. to a solution can be designed simply by managing the eigenvalues of the CFSO state equations. Virtually in CFSO3, just the initial. values of positions and velocities of the swarm members have to be randomly assigned. Both standard and parallel versions of. CFSO3 together with validations on classical benchmarks are presented."
