CFOTool: an Octave/MATLAB® toolbox for Central Force Optimization (CFO)

Yesterday we have published "CFOTool: an Octave/MATLAB® toolbox for Central Force Optimization (CFO)" on Launchpad.net.
You can download this toolbox from the following link:

CFO is a deterministic swarm optimization algorithm which  has been introduced for the first time by Dr. Richard A. Formato in 2007. To learn more about this algorithm, you can refer to the following paper:
Formato, R. A., “Central Force Optimization: A New Deterministic Gradient-Like Optimization Metaheuristic,” OPSEARCH, Jour. of the Operations Research Society of India, 46, no. 1, pp. 25-51 (2009). (DOI: 10.1007/s12597-009-0003-4).

The published code provides an Octave/MATLAB®  toolbox which is called CFOTool for deploying the CFO algorithm in Octave/MATLAB® functions or programs.

This tool is completely free and has published under the GPLv3 license. Copying and sharing this program is completely free and we encourage you to share this tool with others. For more information about copying and the GPLv3 license, please refer to the README and COPYRIGHT files included in the code or the GNU website.


If you found any bugs in this tool, please report it using the address provided at the beginning of this text, so we can resolve the bug in the next releases of the program.
Do not hesitate to ask us any questions you have about this program. You can contact us using the CFO team link in https://launchpad.net/cfotool.

Finally I would like to thank to Dr. Richard A. Formato for sharing the original codes with me and his support during writing this tool, and Dr. Seyyed Hamid Zahiri for introducing me the CFO algorithm, his support and encouragement during the whole time.
