We recently proposed a new multipoint search method for 2-dimensional continuous optimization problems based on an analogy of spiral phenomena called 2-dimensional spiral optimization. Focused spiral phenomena, which appear frequently in nature, are approximated to logarithmic spirals. Two-dimensional spiral optimization used a feature of logarithmic spirals. In this paper, we propose n-dimensional spiral optimization by extending the 2-dimensional one. The n-dimensional spiral model is constructed based on rotation matrices defined in n-dimensional space. Simulation results for different benchmark problems show the effectiveness of our proposal compared to other metaheuristics.
