A Lévy search strategy based chaotic artificial bee colony algorithm (LABC) is proposed in this paper. The chaotic sequence, global optimal mechanism and Lévy flight mechanism were introduced respectively into the initialization, the employed bee search and the onlooker bee search. The experiments show that the proposed algorithm performed better in convergence speed, global search ability and optimization accuracy than other improved ABC.
