In this paper, we intend to formulate a new meta-
heuristic algorithm, called Cuckoo Search (CS), for
solving optimization problems. This algorithm is
based on the obligate brood parasitic behaviour
of some cuckoo species in combination with the
L´evy flight behaviour of some birds and fruit flies.
We validate the proposed algorithm against test
functions and then compare its performance with
those of genetic algorithms and particle swarm
optimization. Finally, we discuss the implication of
the results and suggestion for further research.
