Table 1 Correspondence between bee’s behavior and optimization

From: Piecewise modelling and parameter estimation of repairable system failure rate

Bee searches for nectar source Optimization
Location of nectar source Value of all θ = (a 1, b 1, t 0, a 2, b 2, t 1)
Quality of nectar source Fitness value corresponding to all θ, i.e. L(S1,S2,…,Sn|θ)
Speed of gathering honey Solving speed
Maximum fitness max L(S 1,S 2,…,S n |θ)
