Abstract: The convergence analysis of existing methods for artificial bee colony algorithm(ABC) is based on the analysis method of global convergence.But these convergence analysis methods can’t show the convergence change in the convergence process of ABC.Firstly,the method of combination of number and shape is adopted,and the objective function diagram is combined to divide the convergence process of ABC into the global search stage and the optimal region search stage by using stage analysis.Then,the convergence process and changes of each stage are analyzed one by one based on transferring character that the artificial bees follow a certain degree of average distribution.Finally,the convergence results and change of ABC are obtained.This method can clearly show the convergence advantages and defects of the ABC algorithm,and reveal the changing process of the convergence probability of the algorithm.

Key words: Artificial bee colony algorithm, Markov chain, Global convergence, Combination of number and shape
