This chapter is devoted to particle swarm optimization (PSO), from early precursors to contemporary standard variants. The presentation begins with the main inspiration source behind its development, followed by early variants and discussion on their parameters. Severe deficiencies of early variants are also pointed out and their solutions are reported in a relative historical order, bringing the reader to contemporary developments, considered as the state-of-the-art PSO variants today.
