#2748 assigned defect

PSO doesn't update the PersonalBest

Reported by: abeham Owned by: architects
Priority: medium Milestone: HeuristicLab 3.3.15
Component: Algorithms.ParticleSwarmOptimization Version: 3.3.14
Keywords: Cc:


It can be seen in the DebugEngine that the personal best solution is never updated, but the PersonalBestQuality is.

The culprit is probably line 318 in the RealVectorSwarmUpdater. The line only sets the solution in the array that is extracted from the scopes. But the change is not written back into the scopes.

I created a patch that fixes the operator. But actually, we'd have to up the version number of the real vector encoding plugin to 3.4 since PSO behavior has changed significantly.

The observed algorithm behavior is now much more consistent and understandable.
