This web site is dedicated to biogeography-based optimization (BBO) and related material. If you have any papers or software that you would like to be included on this web page, please email the information to Dan Simon at d-dot-j-dot-simon-at-csuohio-dot-edu.
The original BBO paper can be downloaded from http://academic.csuohio.edu/simond/bbo. Note that the Matlab software on that web site is inefficient; you can download better software from the web site below.
MATLAB® software is available for continuous BBO. The code is designed so that it can be easily modified and customized for specific optimization problems by users who are familiar with MATLAB m-files. A tutorial article, including pseudo-code and simple Matlab code, is also available at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biogeography_based_optimization.
Sarvesh Nikumbh has written R software for continuous BBO.
An Adobe Flex graphical user interface is available for genetic algorithms and BBO:
I used to list all of the BBO papers that I knew about on this web page. However, it has become too hard to keep up with all of the papers that are published. If you want a list of BBO papers, it is easy to search on Google Scholar. I will continue to make BBO papers available for download on this web page, so feel free to email me if you have any BBO papers that you would like me to include here.
