Abstract

The harmony search algorithm (HSA) is one of the most widely used meta-heuristic optimization algorithms. During the last two decades, many improved versions and variants of HSA have been proposed to improve the algorithms efficiency and usability. In this study, a HSA variant with unique structural characteristics is proposed, named multi-layered harmony search algorithm (MLHSA). The multi-layered structure is specifically designed for the effective improvement of exploration and exploitation capability. The proposed MLHSA is applied to a set of benchmark problems to test and verify the efficiency. The application results show that MLHSA outperforms other meta-heuristic algorithms, indicating the competitiveness of the algorithm. The multi-layer concept can be easily employed to other algorithms, as a helpful tool for the improvement of existing algorithms convergence.
