Current Studies and Applications of Shuffled Frog Leaping Algorithm: A Review

by   Bestan B. Maaroof, et al.

Shuffled Frog Leaping Algorithm (SFLA) is one of the most widespread algorithms. It was developed by Eusuff and Lansey in 2006. SFLA is a population-based metaheuristic algorithm that combines the benefits of memetics with particle swarm optimization. It has been used in various areas, especially in engineering problems due to its implementation easiness and limited variables. Many improvements have been made to the algorithm to alleviate its drawbacks, whether they were achieved through modifications or hybridizations with other well-known algorithms. This paper reviews the most relevant works on this algorithm. An overview of the SFLA is first conducted, followed by the algorithm's most recent modifications and hybridizations. Next, recent applications of the algorithm are discussed. Then, an operational framework of SLFA and its variants is proposed to analyze their uses on different cohorts of applications. Finally, future improvements to the algorithm are suggested. The main incentive to conduct this survey to provide useful information about the SFLA to researchers interested in working on the algorithm's enhancement or application
