Forest Optimization Algorithm (FOA), a recent evolutionary algorithm suitable for continuous nonlinear optimization problems. It is inspired by a few trees in the forest that can last for several decades while other trees can only live for a short time. In FOA, the tree seeding technique is simulated so that certain seeds fall directly under the leaves, while others are dispersed over a large area by natural processes and animals that feed on the seeds or fruits. In this paper, we used the sphere mathematical function to implement FOA as a step-by-step process, and the iteration-based results are displayed. The findings of the experiments demonstrated that FOA performed well in certain data sets from the UCI repository.
