This paper presents a quantum-behaved neurodynamic swarm optimization approach to solve the nonconvex optimization problems with inequality constraints. Firstly, the general constrained optimization problem is addressed and a high-performance feedback neural network for solving convex nonlinear programming problems is introduced. The convergence of the proposed neural network is also proved. Then, combined with the quantum-behaved particle swarm method, a quantum-behaved neurodynamic swarm optimization (QNSO) approach is presented. Finally, the performance of the proposed QNSO algorithm is evaluated through two function tests and three applications including the hollow transmission shaft, heat exchangers and crank–rocker mechanism. Numerical simulations are also provided to verify the advantages of our method. View Full-Text
