Abstract . A discrete cat swarm optimization is a metaheuristic based on natural behavior of cats, each cat has two modes that are the seeking mode, and the tracing mode. The seeking mode is when a cat is at rest, that’s how a cat spends most of its life time. The tracing mode is when a cat is hunting. This paper proposes a new discrete cat swarm optimization algorithm to solve the quadratic assignment problem, as one of the known combinatorial optimization problems. This problem is attributed to NP-Hard class. In order to test the performance of the algorithm described herein, we will resolve some instances of the quadratic assignment library problem.
