This is a handy toolbox for the recently proposed Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA) algorithm. The WOA algorithm is a new optimization technique for solving optimization problems. This algorithm includes three operators to simulate the search for prey, encircling prey, and bubble-net foraging behavior of humpback whales.
