An implementation of Karaboga (2005) Artificial Bee Colony Optimization algorithm < http://mf.erciyes.edu.tr/abc/pub/tr06_2005.pdf>. This (working) version is a Work-in-progress, which is why it has been implemented using pure R code. This was developed upon the basic version programmed in C and distributed at the algorithm's official website.
abc_cpp now checks the domain of the function.
fnscale added (see stats::optim)
plot method for
abc_answer class object.
NEWS.md file to track changes to the package.
abc_cpp written with Rcpp (roughly 50%-100% faster than
abc_optim return objects of class
Objects of class
abc_answer return the trace of the global optimums.
