Abstract

This paper carries out the performance study of Harmony Search Algorithm (HSA) employing some standard test functions [1]. Unconstrained test functions like Sphere, Rastrigin, Ackley and Rosenbrock functions are chosen for this work. The efficacy of harmony search algorithm is justified by comparing it with Genetic Algorithm (GA). Further improved versions of harmony search algorithm can be used to test these benchmark functions and obtain better results. Constrained optimization problems can also be considered in future.
