© 2015 IEEE.This paper presents a non-parameter method to identify the peaks of the multi-modal optimization problems provided that the peaks are characterized by a smaller objective values than their neighbors and by a relatively large distance from points with smaller objective value. Using the identified peaks as the seeds, we decompose the population into some subpopulations and dynamically allocate the computational effort to different subpopulations. We evaluate the proposed approach on the CEC2015 single objective multi-niche optimization problems. The promising experimental results show its efficacy.
