This paper deals with a modification on Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), an original topology whose use can be justified to optimize multimodal functions. The analysis is further verified by some proofs, using different benchmark functions with asymmetric initialization. The method is optimistic and may be a starting point for further discussions.
Keywords : Particle Swarm Optimization; evolutionary computation; test functions; neighborhood topology.
