Firefly algorithm (FA) is a prominent metaheuristc technique. It has been widely studied and hence there are a lot of modified FA variants proposed to solve hard optimization problems from various areas. In this paper an improved chaotic firefly algorithm (ICFA) is proposed for solving global optimization problems. The ICFA uses firefly algorithm with chaos (CFA) as the parent algorithm since it replaces the attractiveness coefficient by the outputs of the chaotic map. The enhancement of the proposed approach involves introducing a novel search strategy which is able to obtain a good ratio between exploration and exploitation abilities of the algorithm. The impact of the introduced search operator on the performance of the ICFA is evaluated. Experiments are conducted on nineteen well-known benchmark functions. Results reveal that the ICFA is able to significantly improve the performance of the standard FA, CFA and four other recently proposed FA variants.
