Systems Approach to Swarm Intelligence
P. V. Matrenin , e-mail:, V. G. Sekaev

The article considers swarm intelligence algorithms from the position of system approach. It gives definitions to basic concepts of algorithms in terms of systems theory and suggests a unified scheme of description for all swarm intelligence algorithms. The scheme is applied to describe the Particle Swarm Optimization and Ant Colony Optimization.

Keywords: Ant Colony Optimization, Particle Swarm Optimization, global optimization, swarm intelligence, system approach
