3 Move the Bad-State Fireflies to the Better Place We find a ubiquitous picture in our simulation that there are some fireflies cannot converge to extremum mostly, therefore these fireflies make no sense but increase complexity of algorithm in the later stage of iteration. We decide to move these badstate fireflies( N _ bad ) to the adjacent area of the current best firefly at some moment in the later stage. 05* L * DM (6) Where L is the length of the side of search area, DM is dimension. 2* n (7) Where n is the number of fireflies.

Jin, J. Fu, and L. Xu Diverse Transmission Power The diverse transmission power algorithm does not set all nodes the same transmission power when completing the network connection. Instead it tries to find a minimum power level for every node individually. The algorithm chooses the one with the smallest distance among the node pairs that are not connected yet. Then set transmission power of these two nodes to value sufficient to connect them. Finally, check the connectivity of the resulting network and when the network is not connected start the steps again.
