摘要：A recently developed swarm intelligence algorithm by studying the natural moth's biological behavior is called Moth-Flame Optimization (MFO). The advantages of MFO conclude a simple structure and a robust selection capability. Still, it is easy to be trapped falling into optimal local, and slow search converges. This study suggests a new process improving MFO by hybridizing Levy flight and logarithmic functions for its formula of flame updating to enhance the optimization performance of the algorithm. In the experimental section, a set of benchmark functions of CEC2013 and the multi threshold image segmentation are used to evaluate the proposed method performance. Compared results of the proposed methods with the different algorithms in the same condition scenarios show that the suggested approach provides better results than the various algorithms in the competitions.
