Electro-Search Algorithm.

class opytimizer.optimizers.science.esa.ESA(params: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None)

An ESA class, inherited from Optimizer.

This is the designed class to define ES-related variables and methods.


A. Tabari and A. Ahmad. A new optimization method: Electro-Search algorithm. Computers & Chemical Engineering (2017).

__init__(params: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None) → None

Initialization method.

Parameters:params – Contains key-value parameters to the meta-heuristics.

Number of electrons per atom.


Orbital radius.

compile(space: opytimizer.core.space.Space) → None

Compiles additional information that is used by this optimizer.

Parameters:space – A Space object containing meta-information.
update(space: opytimizer.core.space.Space, function: opytimizer.core.function.Function) → None

Wraps EElectro-Search Algorithm over all agents and variables.

  • space – Space containing agents and update-related information.
  • function – A Function object that will be used as the objective function.
