Let's go through a basic and advanced example.

Simple Benchmark Function

Using Problem dict

from mealpy import FloatVar, SMA
import numpy as np

def objective_function(solution):
    return np.sum(solution**2)

problem = {
    "obj_func": objective_function,
    "bounds": FloatVar(lb=(-100., )*30, ub=(100., )*30),
    "minmax": "min",
    "log_to": None,

## Run the algorithm
model = SMA.OriginalSMA(epoch=100, pop_size=50, pr=0.03)
g_best = model.solve(problem)
print(f"Best solution: {g_best.solution}, Best fitness: {}")

Define a custom Problem class

Please note that, there is no more generate_position, amend_solution, and fitness_function in Problem class. We take care everything under the DataType Class above. Just choose which one fit for your problem. We recommend you define a custom class that inherit Problem class if your decision variable is not FloatVar

from mealpy import Problem, FloatVar, BBO 
import numpy as np

# Our custom problem class
class Squared(Problem):
    def __init__(self, bounds=None, minmax="min", name="Squared", data=None, **kwargs): = name = data 
        super().__init__(bounds, minmax, **kwargs)

    def obj_func(self, solution):
        x = self.decode_solution(solution)["my_var"]
        return np.sum(x ** 2)

## Now, we define an algorithm, and pass an instance of our *Squared* class as the problem argument. 
bound = FloatVar(lb=(-10., )*20, ub=(10., )*20, name="my_var")
problem = Squared(bounds=bound, minmax="min", name="Squared", data="Amazing")
model = BBO.OriginalBBO(epoch=100, pop_size=20)
g_best = model.solve(problem)

The benefit of using custom Problem class

from sklearn.svm import SVC
from sklearn.model_selection import train_test_split
from sklearn.preprocessing import StandardScaler
from sklearn import datasets, metrics

from mealpy import FloatVar, StringVar, IntegerVar, BoolVar, MixedSetVar, SMA, Problem

# Load the data set; In this example, the breast cancer dataset is loaded.
X, y = datasets.load_breast_cancer(return_X_y=True)

# Create training and test split
X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=0.3, random_state=1, stratify=y)

sc = StandardScaler()
X_train_std = sc.fit_transform(X_train)
X_test_std = sc.transform(X_test)

data = {
    "X_train": X_train_std,
    "X_test": X_test_std,
    "y_train": y_train,
    "y_test": y_test

class SvmOptimizedProblem(Problem):
    def __init__(self, bounds=None, minmax="max", data=None, **kwargs): = data
        super().__init__(bounds, minmax, **kwargs)

    def obj_func(self, x):
        x_decoded = self.decode_solution(x)
        C_paras, kernel_paras = x_decoded["C_paras"], x_decoded["kernel_paras"]
        degree, gamma, probability = x_decoded["degree_pras"], x_decoded["gamma_paras"], x_decoded["probability_paras"]

        svc = SVC(C=C_paras, kernel=kernel_paras, degree=degree, 
                  gamma=gamma, probability=probability, random_state=1)
        # Fit the model["X_train"],["y_train"])
        # Make the predictions
        y_predict = svc.predict(["X_test"])
        # Measure the performance
        return metrics.accuracy_score(["y_test"], y_predict)

my_bounds = [
    FloatVar(lb=0.01, ub=1000., name="C_paras"),
    StringVar(valid_sets=('linear', 'poly', 'rbf', 'sigmoid'), name="kernel_paras"),
    IntegerVar(lb=1, ub=5, name="degree_paras"),
    MixedSetVar(valid_sets=('scale', 'auto', 0.01, 0.05, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0), name="gamma_paras"),
    BoolVar(n_vars=1, name="probability_paras"),
problem = SvmOptimizedProblem(bounds=my_bounds, minmax="max", data=data)
model = SMA.OriginalSMA(epoch=100, pop_size=20)

print(f"Best agent: {model.g_best}")
print(f"Best solution: {model.g_best.solution}")
print(f"Best accuracy: {}")
print(f"Best parameters: {model.problem.decode_solution(model.g_best.solution)}")

Set Seed for Optimizer (So many people asking for this feature)

You can set random seed number for each run of single optimizer.

model = SMA.OriginalSMA(epoch=100, pop_size=50, pr=0.03)
g_best = model.solve(problem=problem, seed=10)  # Default seed=None

Large-Scale Optimization

from mealpy import FloatVar, SHADE
import numpy as np

def objective_function(solution):
    return np.sum(solution**2)

problem = {
    "obj_func": objective_function,
    "bounds": FloatVar(lb=(-1000., )*10000, ub=(1000.,)*10000),     # 10000 dimensions
    "minmax": "min",
    "log_to": "console",

## Run the algorithm
optimizer = SHADE.OriginalSHADE(epoch=10000, pop_size=100)
g_best = optimizer.solve(problem)
print(f"Best solution: {g_best.solution}, Best fitness: {}")

Distributed Optimization / Parallelization Optimization

Please read the article titled MEALPY: An open-source library for latest meta-heuristic algorithms in Python to gain a clear understanding of the concept of parallelization (distributed optimization) in metaheuristics. Not all metaheuristics can be run in parallel.

from mealpy import FloatVar, SMA
import numpy as np

def objective_function(solution):
    return np.sum(solution**2)

problem = {
    "obj_func": objective_function,
    "bounds": FloatVar(lb=(-100., )*100, ub=(100., )*100),
    "minmax": "min",
    "log_to": "console",

## Run distributed SMA algorithm using 10 threads
optimizer = SMA.OriginalSMA(epoch=10000, pop_size=100, pr=0.03)
optimizer.solve(problem, mode="thread", n_workers=10)        # Distributed to 10 threads
print(f"Best solution: {optimizer.g_best.solution}, Best fitness: {}")

## Run distributed SMA algorithm using 8 CPUs (cores)
optimizer.solve(problem, mode="process", n_workers=8)        # Distributed to 8 cores
print(f"Best solution: {optimizer.g_best.solution}, Best fitness: {}")

Constrained Benchmark Function

from mealpy import FloatVar, SMA
import numpy as np

def objective_function(solution):
    def g1(x):
        return 2*x[0] + 2*x[1] + x[9] + x[10] - 10
    def g2(x):
        return 2 * x[0] + 2 * x[2] + x[9] + x[10] - 10

    def g5(x):
        return -8*x[1] + x[10]
    def g6(x):
        return -8*x[2] + x[11]
    def g7(x):
        return -2*x[3] - x[4] + x[9]
    def g8(x):
        return -2*x[5] - x[6] + x[10]
    def g9(x):
        return -2*x[7] - x[8] + x[11]

    def violate(value):
        return 0 if value <= 0 else value

    fx = 5 * np.sum(solution[:4]) - 5*np.sum(solution[:4]**2) - np.sum(solution[4:13])

    ## Increase the punishment for g1 and g4 to boost the algorithm (You can choice any constraint instead of g1 and g4)
    fx += violate(g1(solution))**2 + violate(g2(solution)) + violate(g3(solution)) + \
            2*violate(g4(solution)) + violate(g5(solution)) + violate(g6(solution))+ \
            violate(g7(solution)) + violate(g8(solution)) + violate(g9(solution))
    return fx

problem = {
    "obj_func": objective_function,
    "bounds": FloatVar(lb=[0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0], ub=[1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 100, 100, 100, 1]),
    "minmax": "min",

## Run the algorithm
optimizer = SMA.OriginalSMA(epoch=100, pop_size=50, pr=0.03)
print(f"Best solution: {optimizer.g_best.solution}, Best fitness: {}")

Multi-objective Benchmark Function

from mealpy import FloatVar, SMA 
import numpy as np

## Link:
def objective_function(solution):

    def booth(x, y):
        return (x + 2*y - 7)**2 + (2*x + y - 5)**2

    def bukin(x, y):
        return 100 * np.sqrt(np.abs(y - 0.01 * x**2)) + 0.01 * np.abs(x + 10)

    def matyas(x, y):
        return 0.26 * (x**2 + y**2) - 0.48 * x * y

    return [booth(solution[0], solution[1]), bukin(solution[0], solution[1]), matyas(solution[0], solution[1])]

problem = {
    "obj_func": objective_function,
    "bounds": FloatVar(lb=(-10, -10), ub=(10, 10)),
    "minmax": "min",
    "obj_weights": [0.4, 0.1, 0.5]               # Define it or default value will be [1, 1, 1]

## Run the algorithm
optimizer = SMA.OriginalSMA(epoch=100, pop_size=50, pr=0.03)

## You can access all of available figures via object "history" like this:
optimizer.history.save_trajectory_chart(list_agent_idx=[3, 5], selected_dimensions=[2], filename="hello/tc")

Custom Problem

For our custom problem, we can create a class and inherit from the Problem class, named the child class the
'Squared' class. In the initialization method of the 'Squared' class, we have to set the bounds, and minmax
of the problem (bounds: a problem's type, and minmax: a string specifying whether the problem is a 'min' or 'max' problem).

Afterwards, we have to override the abstract method obj_func(), which takes a parameter 'solution' (the solution to be evaluated) and returns the function value. The resulting code should look something like the code snippet below. 'Name' is an additional parameter we want to include in this class, and you can include any other additional parameters you need. But remember to set up all additional parameters before super() called.

from mealpy import Problem, FloatVar, BBO 
import numpy as np

# Our custom problem class
class Squared(Problem):
    def __init__(self, bounds=None, minmax="min", name="Squared", data=None, **kwargs): = name = data 
        super().__init__(bounds, minmax, **kwargs)

    def obj_func(self, solution):
        return np.sum(solution ** 2)

## Now, we define an algorithm, and pass an instance of our *Squared* class as the problem argument. 
problem = Squared(bounds=FloatVar(lb=(-10., )*20, ub=(10., )*20), minmax="min", name="Squared", data="Amazing")
model = BBO.OriginalBBO(epoch=10, pop_size=50)
g_best = model.solve(problem)

## Show some attributes

Tuner class (GridSearchCV/ParameterSearch, Hyper-parameter tuning)

We build a dedicated class, Tuner, that can help you tune your algorithm's parameters.

from opfunu.cec_based.cec2017 import F52017
from mealpy import FloatVar, BBO, Tuner

## You can define your own problem, here I took the F5 benchmark function in CEC-2017 as an example.
f1 = F52017(30, f_bias=0)

p1 = {
    "bounds": FloatVar(, ub=f1.ub),
    "obj_func": f1.evaluate,
    "minmax": "min",
    "name": "F5",
    "log_to": "console",

paras_bbo_grid = {
    "epoch": [10, 20, 30, 40],
    "pop_size": [50, 100, 150],
    "n_elites": [2, 3, 4, 5],
    "p_m": [0.01, 0.02, 0.05]

term = {
    "max_epoch": 200,
    "max_time": 20,
    "max_fe": 10000

if __name__ == "__main__":
    model = BBO.OriginalBBO()
    tuner = Tuner(model, paras_bbo_grid)
    tuner.execute(problem=p1, termination=term, n_trials=5, n_jobs=4, mode="thread", n_workers=4, verbose=True)
    ## Solve this problem 5 times (n_trials) using 5 processes (n_jobs), each process will handle 1 trial. 
    ## The mode to run the solver is thread (mode), distributed to 4 threads 

    ## Save results to csv file 
    tuner.export_results(save_path="history", file_name="tuning_best_fit.csv")
    ## Re-solve the best model on your problem 
    g_best = tuner.resolve(mode="thread", n_workers=4, termination=term)

Multitask class (Multitask solver)

We also build a dedicated class, Multitask, that can help you run several scenarios. For example:

  1. Run 1 algorithm with 1 problem, and multiple trials
  2. Run 1 algorithm with multiple problems, and multiple trials
  3. Run multiple algorithms with 1 problem, and multiple trials
  4. Run multiple algorithms with multiple problems, and multiple trials
#### Using multiple algorithm to solve multiple problems with multiple trials

    # default modes = "single", default termination = epoch (as defined in problem dictionary)
    multitask.execute(n_trials=5, n_jobs=None, save_path="history", save_as="csv", save_convergence=True, verbose=False)
    # multitask.execute(n_trials=5, save_path="history", save_as="csv", save_convergence=True, verbose=False)
