This is a short demo for the popular, nature-inspired/metaheuristic,
bat algorithm (BA), which can deal with nonlinear, global optimization problems.
Bat algorithm has the advantages of simplicity, flexility and stability.
It can also automatically switch from global exploration to
local exploitation by fine-tuning its parameters: A and r.
