Bibliography on Particle Swarm Optimization  By Ender Özcan 
CS&E Fall '95 Seminar Abstracts  By Russell Eberhart. A concept for the optimization of nonlinear functions using particle swarm methodology is described. Implementations of two paradigms are discussed and compared. Benchmark testing of both paradigms is described, and applications, including nonlinear function optimization and neural network training, are discussed. Relationships between particle swarm optimization and both artificial life and genetic algorithms are reviewed. (not on line) 
Computational Intelligence Developments and Applications  By James Kennedy and Russell Eberhart. Volume 4, Page 1942. A concept for the optimization of nonlinear functions using particle swarm methodology is introduced. The evolution of several paradigms is outlined, and an implementation of one of the paradigms is discussed. Benchmark testing of the paradigm is described, and applications, including nonlinear function optimization and neural network training, are proposed. The relationships between particle swarm optimization and both artificial life and genetic algorithms are described. Postscript file.

Parameter Selection in Particle Swarm Optimization  By Yuhui Shi and Russell C. Eberhart. In this paper, the authors first analyze the impact that the inertia weight and maximum velocity have on the performance of the particle swarm optimizer, and then provide guidelines for selecting these two parameters. Analysis of experiments demonstrates the validity of these guidelines.
