Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is a recently proposed approach, based on social behavior of organisms such as birds and fishes (Kennedy and Eberhart, 1995). Search is conducted by "flying" particles in the space. In research results reported so far, the trajectories of even a simple particle swarm optimization system have not been formally obtained. This paper provides the trajectory equations for various parameter values in closed form.
