    Quantum-behaved particle swarm optimization (QPSO) algorithm is a global convergence guaranteed algorithm, which shows good search ability in many optimization problems. In this paper, we present an improved QPSO algorithm, called IQPSO, by combining QPSO and an opposition-based learning concept. Experimental studies on four well-known benchmark problems show that IQPSO achieves better results than QPSO and other variants of PSO on majority of test problems.
