    Due to interference phenomena among constrained dimensions of the multimodal optimization or complex constrained optimization problems, a local optimum is easily converged, rather than for the expected global optimum. The enhanced diversity agent in optimal algorithms is one of the solutions to this issue. This paper proposes a novel optimization algorithm, namely BPO, based on the communication of the bees in artificial bee colony optimization (ABC), with the pollen in flower pollination algorithm (FPA) to solve the multimodal optimization problems. A new communication strategy for Bees and Pollens is presented to explore and exploit the diversity of the algorithm. Six multimodal benchmark functions are used to verify the convergent behavior, the accuracy, and the speed of the proposed algorithm. Experimental results show that the proposed scheme increases the accuracy more than the original algorithms.
