Optimization is a more important field of research. With increasing the complexity of real-world problems, the more efficient and reliable optimization algorithms vital. Traditional methods are unable to solve these problems so, the first choice for solving these problems becomes meta-heuristic algorithms. Meta-heuristic algorithms proved their ability to solve more complex problems and giving more satisfying results. In this paper, we introduce the more popular meta-heuristic algorithms and their applications in addition to providing the more recent references for these algorithms.
