In solving global optimization problems Meta-heuristic algorithms are becoming very powerful. Over past few decades many Meta-heuristic algorithms have been developed. This paper intends to provide one of the nature inspired new metaheuristic optimization algorithm, called Bat Algorithm (BA) and its variants. The result of study shows that some variants of BAs can clearly outperform the standard BA.
