ABSTRACT: Fractal Image Compression is a well-known problem which is in the class of NP-Hard problems. Quantum Evolutionary Algorithm is a novel optimization algorithm which uses a probabilistic representation for solutions and is highly suitable for combinatorial problems like Knapsack problem. Genetic algorithms are widely used for fractal image compression problems, but QEA is not used for this kind of problems yet. This paper improves QEA whit change population size and used it in fractal image compression. Experimental results show that our method have a better performance than GA and conventional fractal image compression algorithms.
